I need to see rudyfrancisco perform again.
Come to me, Rudy.
"when a white woman tells me she ‘feels ugly too.’ and is seeking to use this as a parallel to understanding what it means to be black in a racist society. my ears do not give her audience or contemplation. because. while she may ‘feel ugly’ in a world that values her skin and her worth above all others. she knows nothing of what it is to live in a world where ‘you are ugly’ while you are being formed in the womb. the depths of hatred for our skin and its extraordinary nature. touch us before we even arrive into the world. this is something you will never know. a world that does not want you to be born simply because of the color of your skin."

I want to break the entire language
into little pieces
so the edges of these letters
will stop cutting her
