my dream about being white by Lucille Clifton

my dream about being white

hey music and 
only white, 
hair a flutter of 
fall leaves 
circling my perfect 
line of a nose, 
no lips, 
no behind, hey 
white me 
and i’m wearing 
white history 
but there’s no future 
in those clothes 
so i take them off and 
wake up
