i dream of being possible

sometimes i truly believe

that white people are allergic to history and context.

but maybe the reason why we have to stay good at history is because we have to keep it all in our heads

even when we write our histories down, they are buried under the piles of white lies and misinterpretations

or filtered through the white gaze

but history is what grounds us

history, for us, is a form of resistence.

and white people hate us

because we never forget
