Fires Around Us

We should be choking on the flames. Skin stained from the soot.

Fields of fire / symbolizing fertility and future. Great blazes / competing with the sun.

We must re-direct their anger. Re-ignite and re-name their passion.

It’s not too late for mothering and macaroni and cheese. It’s not too late for an afternoon of fathering and fishing.

Parenting not partnering.

thin line between theory

This is for the thin line between womanism and black feminism. They both speak to our social and political intersections as black women. Black feminism is everything that womanism is… I really black women are hesitant to claim the word – feminism.

But label or box or symbol, it doesn’t matter. Black feminism is to womanism as purple is to lavender.
