Marilyn Nelson

“The filth hissed at us when we venture out--
always in twos or threes, never alone--
seems less a language spoken than one spat
in savage plosives, primitive, obscene:
a cavemob nya-nya, limited in frame
of reference and novelty, the same
suggestions of what we or they could do
or should, ad infinitum.”
