Devotion and Care, Published at MasticadoresIndia

I am so pleased to announce that my poem, Devotion and Care, is now available at MasticadoresIndia. Thank you to Terveen Gill, and the team at MasticadoresIndia for their continued support, and for publishing this piece.

Devotion and Care

we hold on too long

believing in that which we see

when in reality
everything worth knowing
lives underneath…

I would be honored if you would go here, and read the rest of my poem. Thank you!

juneteenth, remember
and pay homage to those that
have come before, while
the knowing
that slavery’s insidiousness
still resides within the framework
of this nation’s handiwork

“Won’t it be wonderful when Black history and Native American history and Jewish history and all of U.S. history is taught from one book. Just U.S. history.” —Maya Angelou

“If the cruelties of slavery could not stop us, the opposition we now face will surely fail. Because the goal of America is freedom, abused and scorned tho’ we may be, our destiny is tied up with America’s destiny.” —Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
