"Good Morning, World!"

It’s Raining Out

Why do I want Men to take Me Out

to Restaurants

and Feed Me

& Pay The Bill?

Is it because My Father

was separated from Me

by My Mother

after We left Africa, Gabon

Where I Was Happy

for The First Year of My Life?

I Remember The Dress Shop

I remember The Dress Shop

in Shelburne

where My Grandfather bought Me

The $34.00 Sundress

of Sky Blue

which I wore braless

to Junior High School

The Mammoth Computer

Poems on My Blog

Are fed to AI these days

Without My Control
