Poetry Corner: Black and Brown Fight Tonight

“Black and Brown Fight Tonight”

By David A. Romero [Excerpt]

Black

African-American

By way of West Africa

Transatlantic slave trade

From American plantations

To the first private prison

From the prisons to the fields

Fields to the factories

Factories to unemployment

Unemployment to poverty

The inner city

Smoldering

Almost no way out

But

Sports

Conditioning

Fists

Flying.
