It Takes Time


Moonlight, A24 & Plan B Entertainment, 2016

Black Boi Blu

Black boi blu weren’t you hurt like me too

Choked by your father disowned by your mother for not being the perfect shade of blue

Subjected to self-hate and left alone to defend against the cavalry

Stuck alone in your head trying to find your way up out of poverty

Dancing vigorously to that slow beat trying to feel something that’s not there

Living in a white man’s perspective of who you are dating em just to feel anything.



CROWNS & OWLS IN COLLABORATION WITH ARTIST ALEX GARDNER

Shirtless

Posing shirtless for the world in your broken mirror

Wanting the world to see your progress

Seeking validation from likes and comments

Immortalized pictures for all to peruse

Another face another body in the vast stream

Of shirtless pics and thirst traps
