Black and Snow — still winter

Standard

It’s been a long and busy week – so no poetry. And then snow! So, here goes the first of a bunch of poems to celebrate black women.

One Thousand Nine Hundred & Sixty-Eight Winters
by Jaci Earley

Got up this morning
Feeling good & black
Thinking black thoughts
Did black things
Played all my black records
And minded my own black business
Put on my best black clothes
Walked out my black door
And, Lord have mercy: white snow!
