For Andries Tatane

Paper rights with blood splatters over them.

The new Rorschach test.

What do you see?

I see black empowerment.

I see Strange Fruit

falling

from the tree of Ubuntu.

I see blue is the new black.

What did I do to be so black and blue?

I see Tumi

singing

“My black president does me wrong”

I see them

singing

the song of days long gone

now our freedom’s gone for a song.
