Four xTimes

by Cory T. Atherley

An injured young girl sees her first doctor.
He examines her:

"Alright baby girl...I want you to participate
in a short exercise. Just to
see if you can talk...

What's 1x1?
ONE of these days I will be in love, and healthy.

What's 1x2?
TWO embrace my hips, my dark skin and my African beauty.

What's 1x3?
THREE houses I will own..with a career I can call my own.

What's 2x2?
FOURever will I never degrade myself
or be ashamed of being a black girl born.
