Inspired Poem:

the office dress code is business casual
my pants are civil, dependable, grey
the shirt, once a flirty tangerine,
is now a faded hue of her fiery self
like brown skin that’s lost its luster
beneath the white cast
of UV protection

but these earrings,
these earrings
they do not fade
they are real
these earrings
twisted and dangling
against my face
are all I own that feels like me,
like the me I don’t want to forget.

when my twisted gold earring falls
onto the subway tracks
at 53rd & Lex, I know
it is gone forever.
I imagine the rats make a god of it
bow their pointy noses in worship.
In mourning, I remove the other idol
and place it in my bag.
and at home, in a drawer
and when I move, it moves with me
from the attic apartment in Queens
where I can hear the mice in the walls
searching for a god to worship.
to the 3rd floor walk-up in Brownsville
where the loss feels heaviest
to the home on Long Island
with three bedrooms and two baths
and one earring in the nightstand,
a reminder that I am a Black woman
who never wants to lose herself
in business casual
in the big city
on the train tracks
to the starving rats
who idolize twisted
and dangling gold.
like me.
