So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo
“So I did what most of us do, I tried to make the best of it. I worked 50 percent harder than my white coworkers, I stayed late every day. I dressed like every day was a job interview.

“When they made love

to the end of the spine which he can cause to shiver like a root in the rain.”
Anne Carson, Autobiography of Red

“...And tonight—Geryon? You okay?
Yes fine, I'm listening. Tonight—?
Why do you have your jacket over your head?

Can't hear you Geryon. The jacket shifted. Geryon peered out. I said sometimes
I need a little privacy.
