Word Association Five Points by Toluwanimi Obiwole
Toluwanimi Obiwole’s poem “Word Association Five Points” appears in the 2017 volume of the University of Colorado Honors Journal.
Dry cleaner sushi joint
Jazz club liquor store
Homeless man watches white millennial walk her bike into his grandmother’s old house
Dispensary guard fondles gun
Corner store lady knows all the stories
Black owned white-attended
Heritage center closed for cleaning
Boarded up home family inside cooking
Real estate building up for lease
Broken glass swept under construction fence
A man approaches me for a picture pulls out some tired ones
Wants someone else to know his name and see him
