Release

a house
respect
freedom
hassel-less travel
having asked
serious


uptight in public.
not even cautious just
classist


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
