Woman on the Wall

brown woman paints herself on the wall
turns blond hair to black
white face to brown
thin lips to full
curved around

and the hand that holds the hand of a brown man is colored brown as well

woman paints a woman on the wall
runs from dark eyes once blue
onto cheeks of another tone
pigments of the other history is shown

and the hand that holds the hand of a brown man is colored brown as well

every woman has a story
this one has two to tell
