Standing Naked (Ode to Lucille Clifton)

I stand
butt naked
in my house
(for my house
is the earth)

Tits raised
to the ceiling

Aware that
they can see -

that they
pull their

eyes out (both in
awe of and in shock

The site of a
brown woman
that is

her. self.

Three apexes
(one inverted -that
one at its own

will turn them on
their head.

Turn them mad.

Tis 'bout time
 the tables turned.
