Only love knows our subtle differences. Written by Robin Coste-Lewis

Robin Coste-Lewis: Hi. I’m Robin Coste-Lewis.

_Only love knows our subtle differences_…

Whiteness is the darkest
state around, while the black

night’s a sly mask
for all our milky light

(the whole species still
at war with what we are––

so much power haunched over,
in service, to the fibrous comfort

of our lost minds). Will I ever
have another feeling again?

Yes, just say Yes!
begs the lonely World.
