Who knows why it took me over
22 years to experience my first
semi-legitimate athletic injury
All I can say is this fat finger and
the bruises around my knuckle
mean more than that missed rebound
and I don't care if the swelling ever goes down
as long as I know it convinced even one teenager
I'm not another white woman social worker who could give a damn.


  1. Oh Honey and gmas not there to care for you, I will say a prayer.
