We Real Dark (Gwendolyn Brooks Copy-Change)

WE REAL DARK

the black tattoos
dozens on the guitar player

WE REAL DARK. WE
STAND STARK. WE

WEAVE STORY. WE
SCREAM GLORY. WE

CLASH CROWD. WE
FADE PROUD. WE

GROW OLD. WE
STILL BOLD.

— with apologies to Gwendolyn Brooks

    I love every line but “We grow old.” I feel like that is implied (more descriptively) in “We fade proud.” and even in “We still bold.”

    Other than that, I think all of your other images are fantastic, and I’m glad you went with “clash.”
