Black & Kinky Amongst Brown Waves

NaPoWriMo Challenge:1 of 30

Today is the first day of National Poetry Writing Month! This is not a joke. I am aiming to write a poem a day for the next 30. I actually started 3 poems today, but only one seemed to be close to ‘finished’. I have a feeling that my understanding of that word, finished, will shift a lot over the next month…


lady (c) 2011 by margaux delotte-bennett

things that happen for ‘ladies’
seldom happen for me
no doors opened
lines skipped
indiscretions overlooked

my strength is seen
based on my stature and
the space that i claim as a woman

female bodied
male minded
transcending binary notions of treatment
so treats meant
for ladies
must be too sweet
for me
