one day, I will gather my White women.
every last last loving friend who ever said
"smh" or "no words" or "I can't believe that."
"this make me sad." "this hurts my heart."
I will ask them to kneel before me & cry
into a hand crafted amber vessel.
I will collect each facile drop. save it
for all times I am in danger.
that they can not be there to save me.
I will at least have this magic potion made
only of the finest White woman water.
anoint the foreheads of my beloved boys.
it will save my friends from being dragged out
& drowned by my riptide heart. my tears are
fathomless & seldom seen.
