White Clay

like a war mask over some blend

of Choctaw red Yoruba black

her hair’s plastered flat in leaf plates

and cords down brow hanging in eyes

weary wary glancing sidelong

either side of her eagle nose

full lips carven curve down in scorn

between the deep cheek grooves of grief

but her chin below them’s a prow

breaking through decaying race ice
