Race Poem
I was told
to write a poem about race.
But what should I know about race?
Except that I’m
Black.
And White.
And Cherokee,Jewish,andpeoplethinkI’mSpanish?
I suppose there is another side of me
that I don’t think you’ve ever met
Because I’ve never met her either
But I’m told she’s in there
Somewhere.
I’m told she
listens to misogynistic rap lyrics
shoots hoops in her free time
chills with the gang
  ya know homie??
will drop out of school in a few years
has taken advantage of the welfare system
has bought plasma screen TVs instead of food for her plethora of malnourished babies
only wears Nike and goes window shopping at the Salvation Army
  she be ghetto yo
I guess being black makes me a lot different than I am.
And while I don’t listen to much hiphop
and while I have no talent in any sport
And while my friends consist of a rainbow of colors and classes

Literature
The Sky
When I was crazy, I used to run
Muddy sneakers kicking up the dirt
Legs pounding against concrete
until I would come to a field,
drop my heavy shoulders heaving,
and gaze at the sky
When I was crazy, no amount of
trained psychotherapists’ diagnoses
eased the turmoil of my mind
like watching the sky’s expanse
unfold from above
grounding me
like forgetting the details of life
to focus on curtains of cloud
blanketing me with peace
Nowadays, I’m not so crazy
But my eyes still find the sky
Restoring my sanity, reminding me to breath
and let life flow through me
tides of emotion  seeping in and trickling out
    seeping in and trickling out
    seeping in and
Remind yourself to look up
the next time you’re drowning in life
Ignore the smokestacks
bombing heaven’s terraces with pollution, though
And let’s knock them down at the end of this prayer
save our serenity from chaos
salvage our sanity from humanity
