A piece written. A response to the visual piece by Kobena Ampofo (@mnml_plus).
Thanks to Gold Host for publishing and the opportunity to express.
This was and is part of an ongoing exhibition entitled 'BODY'.
A child. A boy. The linear journey of the son of man. Flesh adorned. Body adored.
The sightings of different hues. The beauty of the earth’s tapestry subdued.
My garments instigate a threat.
Hold on. I am no threat. Don’t shoot.
My clothing layers to come off.
Don't shoot. My hands are up.
My shades chucked. My durag unwrapped.
