I Don't Know What Happened To The Black Man (Current Version)

By Patricia Mcgurk Martin  (booksie.com)

We are depressed from slavery and we carry the rage around underneath the cover of depression. It is a manhole I inhabit, with the lid on the street covering the rat sewer I live in. I look up and I don’t want to climb up onto the bright street again like in childhood, and be run over...

I Don't Know What Happened To The Black Man

By Patricia Mcgurk Martin  (booksie.com)

These are my thoughts for the past few months on being a black man in the United States of America. We can take his place emotionally or spiritually and fill in some of the blanks that slavery has left – a TERRIBLE HOLE IN THE BLACK RACE’S GARMENT.

What Went Wrong With The Women?

By Patricia Mcgurk Martin  (booksie.com)

Spree violence is not that far away when repressed rage overtakes your mind and you have no outlet at all. You act as if nothing is wrong, nothing is wrong at all. Perhaps you yourself have been spanked all your life, and assaultive spanking is active in your hands as a result.

We Lie Under Our Skin

By Patricia Mcgurk Martin  (booksie.com)

As I lie in my skin at night, ominous shadows surround the bright moon and menace around my nightlight, my own lamp. I can see the escaping light and I am afraid to dream as the terrorists, the rapists are in the closet or under the bed.

A Hard Rain Is Going To Fall

By Patricia Mcgurk Martin  (booksie.com)

It is hard air I breathe as myself - tight and constricted in the coffins, in the caskets where I have no breath no air. It is tight in here.

By Patricia Mcgurk Martin  (booksie.com)
