I used to think Poetry would never evolve until I evolved as a poet.
If I had to choose somebody to save the world,
I'll be damned if the answer wasn't a Black Womxn.
However, Black Womxn deserve to save themselves, first.
Imagine a world where rest is a requirement.
This is an invitation to reflect on motion
and its relationship to Black Womxn and to consider
where there is room to serve, sacrifice or surrender.
The first "still film", Backseat is a love story.
Maybe it's lust.
The choice is yours.
