I am a child of summer.

A girl from my highschool once held my hand,

'Sometimes I feel like I am in a hallway'
she whispered
‘With the experiences of every black person in the world behind me.’
She tapped her wrist, then mine.
‘Why don’t they know that I am not the face of everyone who ever lived with skin that was not white?’

She put to words the way my skin felt
crooked
when everyone looked at her during history class.
Even the teachers who wore glasses couldn’t see right.

'Thank you. Thank you for looking at me like a wave,
and not like an ocean’

Like the waterproof eyeliner wrapped around these bleary blues, I won’t run when the rivers come. Stinging and smoke can’t get me gone.
