sweet red yams,
black eyed peas and okra seeds
braided into my ancestors’ hair. 
brown-skinned geniuses
boarding white ships

to cross ocean divides,
to cook ancient food,

sweet red yams,

black eyed peas and okra seeds

braided into my ancestors’ hair.
 

brown-skinned geniuses

boarding white ships

to some ‘new world’


the green slimy survival


but I like how it tastes

to cross ocean divides,

to cook ancient food,

touch, and be alive.
