a house
hassel-less travel
having asked

uptight in public.
not even cautious just

can I go on
skipping visits
meet at pinkie’s

gaoler buzz
Backpack kids and drummer boys and bucket boys
pick up a name

Meet before dark
it’s torturous
next time remember
waiting for you is torturous

black children learning gaining heritage
my people are a grand people
go, Reuben, bring more of my people

warned about white girls
went pink on the tip
that must have hurt

intolerance peaking
take one more look
say yes
