Translucent paper

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

A portrait.

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.
