from a black artist to an agent in a time of obama, africom, oprah, renisha mcbride, and mass incarceration

Before I can write
based on
what I've seen,
ima need to write essays
about what I already have seen
I sit down
to write a story
that could
have been
and I get distracted
by the cloud
of memories
of what was
My past
perfect keeps pummelling
my subjunctive.
Cuz a whole lot
of what I've seen
don't make no
damn sense

  1. If you want to know about not making sense, come back to North Carolina, Omar.
