Ambiguity | By A.R. Salandy
I travel to the east of the coldest west Each summer, (To where my father grew to know injustice) Where Auntie says Mama isn't black so she struggles (What oppression has she faced? I wonder) Or maybe her struggle is defined By injustice not of her own doing (But maintained in cyclical oppression) Why must she struggle To visit this dark urbanity segregated (Why must race be used to isolate?) But then I see her light skin Shimmer in the moonlight (Just as my light tan did under smokey street lights) But then I remember That we are the distorted futures (Racially ambiguous, they say, human, we are)
