“If you wake tomorrow
and you are black
and living in America.
Your lungs are twin shotguns,
your heart is a sickle
and breathing
is an act of resistance.”

—   Rudy Francisco (Poem: Sickle)

Student:

What were you like in high school?

Rudy:

I was really shy, really quiet, really awkward.

Student:

So what did you do to transition out of your awkward teenage phase?

Rudy:

I became an awkward adult.
