White Tears

one day, I will gather my White women.
every last last loving friend who ever said

"smh" or "no words" or "I can't believe that." 
"this make me sad." "this hurts my heart."

I will ask them to kneel before me & cry
into a hand crafted amber vessel.

I will collect each facile drop. save it
for all times I am in danger.

that they can not be there to save me.
I will at least have this magic potion made 

of the finest White woman water.
anoint the foreheads of my beloved boys.

it will save my friends from being dragged out
& drowned by my riptide heart. my tears are 

fathomless & seldom seen.
