    Lucille Clifton reads her poem My Dream About Being White

    My Dream About Being White
    by Lucille Clifton (1936-2010)

    hey music and
    me
    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
    dancing.
