alternate realities

i exist in my world 

it rises up like atlantis  

carved from oceanic rock 

only real 

and  

Black as fuck 

i exist in my world 

it is small enough to hold 

between thumb and forefinger 

between my body and yours 

between this dimension and the next 

and still  

big enough to cocoon me 

i exist in my world 

it is me looking up at a crown of trees 

carrying their whispers in the wind 

the names of lovers seared into my chest 

bare skin pressed against sacred ground 

moon held tightly under my tongue 

i exist in my world 

because 

we exist in my world 

it is us living laughing loving being 

absolutely unbothered by colonizers  

or masters  

or patriarchs 

here 

the sky is blue  

the sun is shining 

and when it rains 

it pours
