Candis Johnson Poems

Then There Was Harlem

I mourn you
Though, I never knew you
I’m part of you but we’ve never met
I love you, but
You’re merely a distant reverie
Black boys and black girls
Who, eventually became black men and women
They are my family but we’ve never met
I won’t say we’re estranged

[Hata Bildir]
