None of the ever / Women I ever saw

naked was black     in the magazines was black

None on the tapes I found when I was four-

teen in the glovebox of his truck

When after things had changed

None of when I     was five was six was seven the / Women I saw

Had hair like mine a     face like mine

But saw     a black man in a comic once

Cheetah pelt draped across his chest

A dick as long as he was tall     / And knew I was

was even as a boy     supposed to be

seeing myself

And saw myself

and later stood     naked in front of the bathroom mirror

Dick tucked between my thighs

and knew I was a girl
