They say amnesia is rare, but I think we forget all the time.


Don’t crawl on your knees.
I forgot.
Stay out of the sun.
I forgot.
You’re getting too dark.
I forgot.


Who is privileged enough to forget and who is tasked to remember? Skin slathered in coconut oil laid out on psychedelic beach towels. Search: How to Turn a Sunburn into a Tan. Bright red skin blistering in the sun, boils popped and soothed with aloe, peeled skin reveals a shiny light brown (not TOO brown) complexion. All of the suffering has been worth it. The pain is forgotten.

The ones who remember have the pain etched in their (OUR) bones. The ones tasked with being too dark for this world take on an assignment they never asked for: to force themselves to remember while continuously being asked to forget. Search: How to Unlearn Self-Hatred. Grandmas, aunties and play cousins reinforce the internal struggle with creams, shaded partitions and idioms hell bent on squashing out the bright light that comes from being dark. If darkness is a void, then Blackness is a cosmic void: abundant implosions of visionary energy as a direct result of systemic compression.
