How would you like to bury my soul – Anointing K Obuh 

We girls/what chance do we have against bitterness /the fire raging within our souls/ This war/hands overrated/bathed with our mother’s blood/this grief/fingering us to sleep/Tell your sister/her/ hands will ice over/come may/ she would stop feeling/like a bitch/such revolution in a word/ graffiti painted on streets/ halfway across the world/ let her sing misery/like a lark/ record her pain on a VN/ Before she crosses over/in her dreams/ into the graffiti painted on streets/halfway across the world/ Leaving behind/ a half chewed gum/her favorite bra/ a flower for mother/ and a suicide note/ craftily written.
