Digging For Roots : Poems // by Kiana Davis

I don’t know who 
they are listening for 
and it won’t be 
reincarnated here

You won’t find 
Hemingway in 
my voice 
or Emily in my steps 

My sound will 
be more like
Tubman’s and Lorde’s
I want to free the caged bird 
and help Solomon find his song 
              ~ from ‘Judgement’
