a governor's journal
January 28, 2017

i have no designs on greatness you’ll find,
like ta-nehisi coates: just bleeding to survive,
tracing screams on a black canvas.
mining education before the canary keels.
singing songs before they indenture my voice.
breaking hearts before the beating

stops.

then again, no. i’m white and that’s preposterous.
