Asante Keron Hamid

Is it the holy ghost
or a plot hole in the
story of a Bible-thumping
slave forced to shout
the wicked names of his
oppressors?
Did you hear that?
Maybe it’s just me. Maybe
it’s the post-trauma peeking
up from below. Maybe we
went from churning out soul
to turning aloud the pages
of what they whipped us with
to tug us over here on boats.
