This is about half of desire half of need
Half about women half heartedly
Slaying words over open wounds.
Only a slight relief to heal hearts
From half hearted men,prideful
In their misogynistic assaults
This is halfway about hope
Halfway saturated in self sorrow.
Tomorrow and yesterday’s yesterday,
Unable to remember last night.
Halfway through living, halfway
Fantasizing about what’s next.
A knife can penetrate halfway through
A black ink pin; while pinning
Family, life, racial unease, time and
Time until everything revolves.
Halfway about poetry and halfway
About being strong enough to communicate
The deepest fears through spoken word
Half yesterday half now.
Half of a pin to paper
Ritual. Manifested to make from nothing.
