i am defiance in this black skin
i’m all smiles. (afterthoughts…)

How do you make your poetry move the way you do? Damn. I just realized, as I highlighted this to respond to it (about the rhythm), that out of context, it’s a good sentence. Strong. But it isn’t the fierce unrelenting power that shook the breath from me when I read it in context. Just…that’s mind blowing.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
