hovering in a crossroads
uncertainty giving lift to conditioned bodies
shall we not fly?
mother oaks humming over offspring
bronze and iron findings along fragrant trails
where is home?
reaving ore near dusk
tools unfit to shackle us
still us shackled
During Black History Month, this blog will honor people who demonstrated critical elements of the Black / African experience with commemorative poems. This poem draws inspiration from the work of Distinguished Professor of Law Kimberlé Crenshaw whose critical theory on the intersections of social identities crystalizes how social identities interact in the socio-political sphere (and more importnantly, our every day lives).
