Black Girl

Black Girl ★★★★

La noire de...
The black girl of...
what?
whom?
where?
Nowhere.
No one.
Nothing.

Or is "of" the most
important word in the title?
Is she the property of?
Existing
only to be exploited;
only to be manipulated,
abused, and destroyed?

Something,
but only in the
form of nothing,
only in the form
of an object,
a possession.

La noire de...
Nulle part;
Personne;
Rien.

Postcolonial rage at its finest.
