Curious and Counting Arisa White How do I get in your atmosphere? Tell me about your sign, look me planetarily --those Venuses in your eyes? There was no thought after you and I wrote it down. Wandered to the wailing with my back exposed. My kind of Sunday, your knees buffalo and kicking up plains. We go sockless for beauty. Ribbons unwind bring us to tied, I'm at your symmetry, remembering all your digits and your lucky number mine. Arisa White is a Cave Canem poet whose works is rooted in black women way of knowing. The author of Who's Your Daddy (Augury Books, 2021) among other titles. She is an assistant professor of Singlish and creative writing at Cole College.
