I am afraid
of what I mean by loyalty.
A down ass bitch.
I’d ride to the grave for love
but what of where I made country
of the place I live my possible death plot?
I wring my birth certificate of
what will bury me in due time.
what will come to the door
asking of my allegiance?
In times of war I lack metaphor
War can be defined as
everyone fucking up my money,
institutions & individuals alike
If I love you
I have threatened someone in your name.
I’m from America, blame my blood for the coming blood.
Blame my murder & assault on someone’s tame renaming
& still am I even from here?
Would I make myself violent in the name of a nation?
I would kill for my mother.
Intersectionality & Culture
the repetition of the same letter or sound at the beginning of words appearing in succession
a break between words within a metrical foot
a question asked for effect, not necessarily to be answered
