My skin is itself a mysticism. And the voice you hear inside these rooms you gave me isn't cursing or casting spells. I earned them after you earned me. With a softer voice and chin jutted, I earned the street, too. These corn silky babies barely amaze, but they remain— remainders. Their brothers don't recognize them, but your wife knows they are mine— mostly yours.
