Poem of the Week, by Langston Hughes

  1. A BLESSED CURSE
    *for the Human Race*

    May your children and your children’s children
    marry, again, and again, he or she whose skin
    is unmistakably (even in a dim light) that shade
    that has you most affronted and afraid,
    and may these marriages be
    devastatingly happy.

    (from Ghostlight: New & Selected Poems, Salmon, 2017)
