from his poem: Duplicity
I swim peripheral glances.
Back-stroke being ignored.
Wade on a chair
in a corner of the room,
chat up the Help
some(not brown or black)one
an integration lifeline.
Light & Dark
sparkle the waters
pretty chimera. …
Poem originally appeared at Pluck! The Journal of Affrilachian Arts & Culture
