THREE POEMS BY REBECCA LYNN

HOW TO TALK TO A PEGAN BY ELIZABETH SHULER
February 8, 2019
POETRY BY ELIZABETH REAMES
February 10, 2019

isn’t it so angry black woman of me/
to call those who come for me/vultures/
waiting to pick apart/a thing/they call /already/dead

 

 

LAST NIGHT I HAD AN AMERICAN DREAM

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WHITE WOMAN LOVES ME SO MUCH

she thinks i’m so cute
and sweet
and my “yes m’am” reminds her
of the good
old
south
and white woman says she
wants to take
my hair
my words

my everything

says: she just wants to keep me
in her closet

would love
to see me
hanging
there
