As tulip as u

We are more similar than different

By G. A. BoteroPublished 5 months ago 1 min read

Imagine me

having to read

in order to compete.

Yet here I am

Drunk as can be

let's see.

How can I relate?

No Afro for me,

Chariot free,

California driver

Lover of sparking water.

But wait

I love soul food too

and I too am made of water

Butterfly lover, Monarchs for me.

I, a tulip but violet

alone at first

but bound by humanity,

part of a field of dreams.
