Lucille Clifton - the photograph: a lynching

is it the cut glass 
of their eyes
looking up toward
the new gnarled branch 
of the black man

I’m cuo2&usr#8

I’m cuo2&usr#8i11;if you are going to Ontario (Eastern Canada, right?) why are you going to the Western U.S. just to turn around and come back the way you came? Wouldn’t it have made more sense to fly into Toronto or Montreal and skip the hell that is U.S. customs?We waited forever in Newark. It was no kidding probably half an hour to forty five minutes of me standing and waiting (in an increasingly large group) at the exit of the customs area for the Swede, while every so often a TSA agent would come by and be rude to someone.
