Am I your worst nightmare,
or your best case scenario?

Where do I fall on the spec-
trum of the unwanted ones?

Do you tremble at what these
genes might unleash upon you?

Or are you relieved that domi-
nant browns can express white?

Do you shudder at the thought of
children with this portraiture?

Or do you breathe knowing it’s poss-
ible for dirt to turn out this good?

Tell me:

Do I wake you up at night in
a pool of panicky sweat?

Or do I comfort the deepest
depravities of your vile thoughts?
