On Release Pt. 1 (from Ntozake Shange School of Literary Thought writing session)

1. smeared colored canvas

my red lips can’t hide the blues

baptized in trauma

2. your shit never flushed

you fled leaving mess behind

for others to deal

3. a ticking time bomb

eating fault to smother

silently implode

4. picking up pieces

a brown body mosaic

cemented in air

5. too heavy to float

anchored by shame, anger, and

failed biology

-V. Butterfly Thunderwolf.
