From June Jordan:

July 18, 2018

And if I
if I ever let you slide
who should be extirpated from my universe
who should be cauterized from earth
completely

then let my body fail my soul
in its bedeviled lecheries

And if I
if I ever let love go
because the hatred and the whisperings
become a phantom dictate I o-
bey in lieu of impulse and realities

then let love freeze me
out.
I must become
I must become a menace to my enemies.

I Must Become a Menace to My Enemies
