Queer black women scooting by the wall
Straight black women and queer black men have the floor
To battle for their place in the negro hierarchy
Homophobia a long handled machete, wielded wildly
Misogynoir sharpened arrows freefall from the air
Red liquid of collateralized damage pools out from queer women, who folks forgot were there
Every hit harmed twice
In dying breaths they compromised their identities

to pick sides of the ones still standing
