"My Art Practice"

“I apologize if you were hurt, but I do not apologize for what I did. Once again, this is my art practice. My work directly involves black trauma and non-white suffering. I do not believe that there can be social healing without first coming to terms with and expressing our own pain, rage, and trauma.”

"As You Are Now"

I have loved
As you are now
Deeply lost to each other.

I have tossed
The whole world over
Hoping to build another.

"Can I Do"

Can I do
In Xanadu
What I cannot do elsewhere?

"Is It That"

Is it that I'm mad,
. . Angry
That makes me stay away.

Is it that I'm mad,
. . Crazy
That I stay this way.

Is it that I'm sad,
. . Sorrowful
At all that was so wrong.

Or is it that I'm bad,
. . Morally
That I've stayed away so long.
