Inspired by Zong! by M.NourbeSe Phillips
I am not something you
Writing about you
I promised myself that I would at least give this a shot
Even though I’m
From any other source of inspiration at the moment.
We are just emerging from
A Technicolored Love.
Each time a gentle beam of light
Struck through our core,
I admired every facet.
Today I thought about
How I miss
Disinfecting my hands dozens of times
The buzz of the automated dispenser
Like a heartbeat
So hyper- sensitive
I certainly do
A fantastic job
I’m even better
