Purging the Reservoir


My neck tarnished

stretches of veins collapsing around the dirt that holds fast to my collar.

Riches from a blue sky have deemed my whiteness in such a way that…I wish the lies to be truth.

white n black

And, thus I sit in my poor excuse at living unassisted.

A whitewash for my migrant legacy.

Opening a chasm between…

pools for swimming

and swimming pools to be emptied.
