The Righteous Thinker (For Warda)

She spoke beautiful words...
and for the first time I saw the sun!
Inhabiting this new position of freedom...
...awakened, vivid crimson BLUE and breathing...
I say that her heart is my own!
Remarkable-
Persevering-
Black woman!
...the righteous thinker
who dreamt beloved, abounding summer
to
the
wintry
expanse
of patriarchy.
