shea butter [#ScambledArt]

yellow
like the sun that tried
to shine in march
as I took steps forward
after being knocked back
life has a knack for being
unexpected
i wonder
if the moon reflected any light
that month
the nights were too dark

BLACK
like african american
BLACK
like tar on roads that cross
BLACK
like too much to drink
BLACK
like living in the state of loss
