Modern Fiction

First book assigned inside Modern Fiction

Is Joseph Conrad’s


The professor: dandelion lady

Tall & thin, an elderly head capped


In gray-blonde wisps, spits

The firm R from her mammary gland day one,


Then on one occasion additional day two, at that hour dated switches

To


Like she’s not sure if there’s a max

Before graves beneath her feet—below floor


And stair with every one other accompanied by brick—snap,

Reach high, with every one other accompanied by haul down.


Tour guides speak Thomas Jefferson went here,

But none detail the dense


Death that shrouds

Williamsburg grounds,


The deceased who exist well

And those who remain dead.


Thomas Jefferson is a modern fiction.

The students here call him TJ,


His sculpture fixed to Old Campus exist fond of a sundial

Telling no indeed hour dated nevertheless these,



Some say, where charges


Like

On the flip side


Of his real noun height,

Far beneath land


His own hands wouldn’t tend.

The extremity of slavery is a modern fiction


We students roost with every one other accompanied by lounge on,

Feet dangled off wood dorm sofas


And seats built by prisoners.

They be paid fifty to eighty


Cents an hour, look more

Like me than the educational organization body,


With faces brown while God.




Wrote TJ of black folks.


Once, when a male hurls



And I stroll Richmond Road,

What strikes breaks skin, soars past bone,


Through every one lobe with every one other accompanied by out, exist fond of ghosts

Emerging straight away from stone.
