Thematically Black

I am
Thematically Black.
I know.
I'll give you a minute.
You okay?
I know
I am
Thematically Black
Like
Hot sweet coffee
That satisfies
And burns
And ain't for the
Weak
Of
Heart
Or
Stomach.
I am
Thematically Black.
Like
Dookie chains
And
Party MCs
Come
To
Tear
The motha
Fuckin
Roof off.
I am
Thematically Black
Like the
Finest leather
Piquant
And faintly erotic
Even
To
Those who abstain.
I am
Thematically Black
Like Midnight
Like obsidian
Like cornrows
Like magic
And cornbread
And
Intergenerational
Trauma
I am
Thematically Black
Like a fist raised
A back unbent
And a soul unbroken
I am thematically Black
Like what built Amerikkka
Like who danced in
Joy
And
Sorrow
And a secret language
Oppressors
Will
Never know
I am
I am
So Black
Everybody in the room is so uncomfortable.
And me?
Me I'm fine
As fuck
And
Thematically
So
God
Damn
Black.
