  185.     

Who am I?

Who am I?
I wish I knew
Got D.N.A.
This is true.
Got fingerprints,
and a name.
Got my picture,
in a frame.
But who am I?
Who do you see?
I'm searching for,
identity.
Am I identified
by my fear?
The things I love?
What I hold dear.
By my faith?
By what I do?
By my demeanor?
Or is all this true.
Who am I?
What's my identity?
It's not defined,
in the word 'me'.

  186.     

A Chick in a River.

So tiny was I.
Happy could I remember
Forgetting my hen
And accepting to be a duckling.

Notes and coins I never shed for
As the ecstasy of life, all I saw
Filled and filtered,
Pampered but blind to see the truth.

Behold, it happened,
Crawling; then flying goes time
With births for a new light
To turn me around.

Readily ready was I
All for the inevitable.
Brighter and brighter beams in the sun
As my sockets began to receive them all

Calls and news of liberation
A call of self identity
To see the crown above
Which had not my siblings.

Suddenly drops my utility
For a discovery I had seen
Deceit I had lived in
My identity was I to find

Behold, I had been
A chick in a river

Email Hell, Death is Less Painful

Is there a limit before they skim it
for me?
At this point, I have only 450 unanswered
emails
to read

Is that a sign of mental sickness
or just a minor lack of quickness?

I'm kinda hopin' 'they' kill my account
that way, no tension will mount.

Do I have to deal with that 'stuff'
I'm not feelin' it today, nor tomorrow,
nor yesterday I guess
nor last week,
months now?

A mess? Yes

but not for me
just lost friends/family.
Not really
just a lost me

Maybe the solution is to be a non-entity?

forward more obscenity?

Delete it all, assume new identity?

Delete is all, assume no identity

Terzanelle for Octavia Estelle Butler

Racism and violence were non-existent in this world

Of fiction, where the black women rescued the white men

To love, while the secrets of slavery were unfurled.



In science fiction, there was a leading light and a ben

Called Octavia Estelle Butler, or Junie in dreams

Of fiction, where the black women rescued the white men.



She wrote about power, disease, incest, love and screams.

Self-destructive violence and hierarchical tendencies

Called Octavia Estelle Butler, or Junie in dreams.



In a sad world of poverty and dependencies,

Without having a father, she learned to fight against

Self-destructive violence and hierarchical tendencies.



Maybe to feel superior in struggle was sensed,

When people were aware to fight for identity.

Without having a father, she learned to fight against.



In a world of mutes, Estelle found a new entity.

Racism and violence were non-existent in this world,

When people were aware to fight for identity

To love, while the secrets of slavery were unfurled.
