We’re building fires that will burn until morning. The smell of books and hot stone surrounds us. Tough is the leather that’s strapped to my skin, strong are the bonds that we make.
Work ‘til you’re musclebound, all night long.
— richard m. nixon, speaking to chinese delegates february 23, 1972.

still not dead.
in the woods, quiet, reading small books.
moss, thick beneath the underbrush.
still not dead.

Another Word: Super Duper Sexual Spiritual Black Woman: The New and Improved Magical Negro by Chesya Burke →

In 2001, Spike Lee popularized the term the Super Duper Magical Negro (SDMN) while speaking to students at Washington State and Yale University. The reference was about the stereotype of the magical Black person who is written into the story to help the white protagonist on his journey. The characters are often uneducated, male, and desexed. They do not have families of their own (The Stand's Mother Abigail—the human race is her family) or desires of their own (The Legend of Bagger Vance's titular character—his sole purpose is to help the white character). Nor do they exist outside of the white characters' constructed idea of them (Noah Cullen—willingly dies to protect the white criminal character in The Defiant Ones). None of this is news. Everyone’s been bombarded with the image of the passive, Black person who only wants to serve.

essential reading.

a wasp, long and slender as one might imagine a wasp to be, crawling, slow as pitch, across the sill of an open window.
the cicadas, crickets, and katydids rasp and chitter but the air is still and cooling, as is the cup of lemongrass and anise tea balanced, ever so precariously, on the edge of the other window sill.
