We Are All Brown

We Are All Brown

We are all brown, and our skin
goes down to Mitochondrial Eve
and Y-chromosomal Adam in the
prehistoric garden of our original
Eden up until now—when our blood
should run thick with African water
instead of oil or the American dollar,
and so we should root, should holler
for the Entertainer who stings us
with his or her rag, flick or blog.
