Love Poems: Maybe.

11.10.11

maybe it is our African mothers
with their quiet desperation
who taught us to love hollow men.

maybe it is our African fathers
with their distant affection
who taught us to love men who leave.

maybe it is our refugee blood
that taught us to search for warmth
in the coldest of hearts.
