    Slaves
    knock at the front
    door

    asking if I'm living with them
    in mind asking if
    I can still smell the stench
    of flogged flesh and tears
    that have sat in the well
    too long

    Slaves knock at my front
    door wondering how it feels to
    be the recepient of their
    struggles and the
    stepping over of deaths in the
    hulls of slave ships

    They want to know how I
    feel / to see If I'm
    alive / mentally breathing
    or just being devoured
    by prime time televisions

    mult(eye)media that cast
    stones at my image

    They want to know if my feet
    ache like their's did
    do I walk in the shadows
    to go unnoticed /
    do I run to find free
    dom / do I think about
    them when I sleep
    or do I behave as if they
    don't exist
