Faces and phases / forcing you to hold your gaze
Get uncomfortable / engulf our pain and rage Non
binary / hail the Black lioness
Came out the wound of a God / yes I am fresh
Masculine / and feminine / melanated images
Heavenly bodies converge inside my discipline
Lyrics by Chaka Mkali, “They coming for me,” from the album Rituals of Resilience
