"The white fathers told us, "I think, therefore, I am" and the black mother within each of us – the poet – whispers in our dreams, I feel, therefore I can be free."- Audre Lorde

Every now and then I smell the scent of his cologne;
 and in those moments I feel unsafe.

Not because the smell of him makes me afraid,
but rather because the smell of him reminds me of how continuously unsafe my world feels
without him near.
