Solange


Now, I must tell you, I didn’t think I had forgotten
until I remembered
the light
the natural light
the soft radiation
of skin seen
and unseen
blackness
black thoughts
black skin
black hair
but forget about that
let’s remember
art
made
time and time again
I’m talking about
elevating shit
yes
I must say it
this way
ain’t like that
don’t make me upset
trying to reflect
all we’ve been given
if – you – don’t – open
your mind up
and outwards
smile
you know you like it
you know you love it
you know you think
about ways
to copy it
the inimitable
but you still imitated
faux pas
faux things
faux means
faux types
the only means
is what it means
what it means
is beauty
feel your soul
push out against
the insides of your fake limitations
breach it
illuminate
elevating again
up
up
and away
is still firmly grounded
digging deeper
is coming up out of a pressure
that could never last
because beauty outlasts
defines
everything around it
strong
