A brief video-chronicle of the Black Arts Movement alongside the writing of JeNae’ Taylor.
past this down to me
give me a story that fills silent vacancies
covering echoes that long to be shallow
i just want to know you
as the being you wanted to be/were/was/am still
Prompt, complete each line then place in a safe place to be given to someone as an heirloom
Otherwise known as
So I chose to
i am JeNae’
otherwise known as creator and adventurer
because in 2014 my body bore witness to many inhumane travesties
so i chose record this history through the lens of poetry while searching for God
