List Lust

List Lust

 

Received your list of BLM requests,
Chanelle — and read it closely as I could.
I’m living in an upscale neighborhood.
Plus, I’m as white as, say, Cate Blanchett’s breasts.
When men insist, I fail submission tests.
I never can quite kowtow as I should.
My ears become like hard, unyielding wood.
The no I utter just once never rests.
Girls are another matter, I concede.
My urge to please the girls is hyperactive.
I can be made to follow where they lead.
I don’t reflect. At best, my mind’s refractive.
Oh, resubmit your bossy list, I plead,
From a black girl who’s actually attractive!

 

—Tom Riley
