DREAm chasing

Recent graduate from The University of Georgia. FilmMaker. I have the feeling this summer is going to be the beginning of something beautiful. Follow me along the journey.

i will crawl for white beauty.
eat my arms
barter my legs (make my thighs into altars of grief)
for
skin that does not drink night
hair that is not angry
body that is not soil.
i place curses on my flesh
call them diets
tell my ancestors
they are ugly
howl at my nose until it bleeds.
run my heart across my teeth, repeatedly
i am dying to be beautiful
but
beautiful
is something i will never
be.
