please make it home safe

I need you here next to me

the tears I’ve seen being wept

when lovers don’t come home

threaten me

the target on your back

the black skin

the melanin

spreads across your

entire body

Melanin.

Heaven sent.

But to them you are

irrelevant

to them

you are nothing but

a stain on this earth

that cant be washed away

to them if you cant jump

hoop

or

rap

you are not safe
