" Shit like that "...

(D) Dyrotha Todd 1970 (Chicago IL)

Labels are not me, please
My growth seems concerning
Even these trees have leaves.....
Again I say labels not me please.
Trying to hold back the tears of what seemed wasted years.... Labels not me please... Knees
Are the obvious place of scares, but my heart is hurt behind these bars.....You aint shit has taken
Up to much space in my empty place and it is not even about race. Dear god where is a better place to erase the hurtful disgrace from being in a unwanted space. Dd
