19/30 NaPoWriMo "Body"

sheed-emilio:

My arms?
My abs?
One day
I just started
working out.
Yeah.
Out of the blue.
That’s it.
Because boys
don’t have body issues.
Definitely not black boys.
Black boys
don’t gain
15 pounds
of muscle
lifting the weight
of a skinny joke.
Black boys
Don’t wish to be desired
or…

Take.

sheed-emilio:

Daughter
Do not
let the men
take you like a treasure,
have them
take you
like a journey.
