Lyrics:
For Misty, by Saul Williams

The systemic structure
built to keep me in place
is the stage I dance on.
Black and Woman.
Motherships, my mother’s hips
beheld deep space.
Astronaut of corporal grace.

Born in a land mine.

As an idea points its toe to flex
to shape the form of possibility

I am testament
twirled into afterthought
the touch and taste of epiphany.

To match my strength
is to feel your own
Yet, like any born
to blaze a trail
to sing a song
and land in jail
to risk it all
to change the game
to shift the form
and take its name
when chased by dogs
and pats des chats
to shatter norms
to solo and
to feel alone
to take up space
in history’s home
to harbor hopes
wishes and dreams
to bring the untold
into being

The oppressor’s gaze
ain’t all-eye-seeing
I’m unlike any.

#IWILL
