“Remember what/the world is like/for white people/…”¹ by Clara B. Jones

I am not a silent poet

Remember what Nuremberg
gave blacks.

Remember what your nanny
said in Spanish.

Remember what fried flounder
smells like.

Remember what America
feels like.

Remember what Gramsci
meant by “hegemony.”

Remember what Basquiat
meant by “SAMO.”

Remember what Obama
said to Bloomberg.

Remember what Pope.L
means by Art.

Remember what Hillary
said to Huma.

Remember what Bernie
owes to Marx.

Remember what LaToya
buys at Macy’s.
