Portrait

Black Woman, brewed up strong
– your sun-deep skin
estranged from the outside,
in this summer’s sunset
dust settles on your dreams.

The fingers of your left hand
fancy reaching out, pursuing
plundered passions
that give blood to life.

Your work is outside
where dirt piles
into dunes of doubt

and stories of silence.
