Race Does Not Define Me


I am not your exoticism
A mere fantasy
to satisfy
your eroticism.

My hair is not your
fuzz ball.
Do not!
Caress it
Brush it
Or touch it at all.

I am not
your quasi-Nubian queen.
Although, I have lived in Africa
so there's nothing
spectacular
you can show me
that I haven't already
seen.

I am not
your evolutionary successor
your slave
your bitch
your sister.

I am not
anything
to you, but a
woman.
So, please
do me a favour.
Fuck off Mister!
