WILD Musings

1

I slurp boba tea but my emptiness is not filled
Black and sticky like the bubbles
The realization sinks to the bottom

2
Sandwiched between 5 bodies
I do not feel closer to the human race

3
The lights strobe
The singer poses
But gladness escapes me

4
I attempt to connect
Like frayed audio cords
Their knots and tangles are not mine to join

5
They call me a good writer
Email from newspaper editor-in-chief
So good huh
6 thumbs up huh
I’d rather be good at forgetting

6
Cheesy sticks give me false joy
Bosco they call them
Why do I remain hungry

7
In an ocean of whiteness I am Other
In a pond of brown I am Awkward
I thought I knew how to swim

8
Dead eyes and frowns
Bodies flopping yet stiff
Our privilege is unhappy

9
That awkward moment when Karmin raps better than Chance the Rapper
