I was born beside a river that flows to a raging sea that will one day serve to quell, or one day be the death of me.
In my faded jeans and far away eyes and salty carnival kiss that all my former lovers say was once magnificent.
- me to a white person: what's your ethnicity
- white person: i'm 1/4 vanilla bean, 2 cups of skim milk, 3 tablespoons of tapioca, 1 teaspoon of corn starch etc
I can be everything you need if you make me.
I can be every crack in your concrete, if you let me off easy.
