America

Notes from the author: *Bright is Jamaican slang for rude.

I’m a poet-singer-songwriter with a knack for sweet melodies and back rolls. My words are sweet too, ’cause I’m fat and queer; I like to make them tasty.
My poem “America,” tackles the righteous rage of a black person receiving news about Trayvon Martin and how George Zimmerman was acquitted.
There’s lots of resistance. Don’t resist this,
Zymbul
