chopped liver

chopped liver

A Poem by Eshe' Allen

on my first safari

in kenya

we came upon some

gazelles

 

graceful

long lines

fast, powerful jumpers

 

sigh

 

and it was in this

moment of blissful

reflection

I was informed

by the masaai

that they are known as

cheetah chow

 

i revere love

and am therefore a

proponent

of chasing it into any

divide

 

but to reject

fully and wholeheartedly

without reflection

 

to forsake

 

is to relegate the

black woman

 

chow
