You never thought there would be multiple people sharing our bed

Infusing their energy

Their experiences

Sexually, seductively, sensually

Sonia, Countee, Langston and many many more. Gender didn’t matter because we moved through them all, giving each one a moment’s meditation for their words: on love, on sex, on healing, on God, on family, on blackness

Our vibrations real and surreal as we read together

we menage, entangling the rhythm of the black poets

heartbeat, breath. heartbeat, breath

infusing our sacred space with the memories of us
