I just want to be as fierce as Langston and Nikki and as regal as Maya with the dark truth-telling of T.S in his Prufrock days. I just want to be a Black girl from the future, and I want to write about the past and rebirth and ghosts because all of these things are too important and I want to shroud myself in them.
I also want a vegetable garden. And to go back home. I don’t want to be here, but I keep coming back.
