I know the anger that lies inside me like I know the beat of my heart and the taste of my spit. It is easier to be angry than to hurt / Anger is what I do best. It is easier to be furious than yearning / easier to crucify myself and you / than to take on the threatening universe of whiteness by admitting we are worth wanting each other.
Tongues Untied | Marlon Riggs, 1989
