Poetry by LaQuisha R. Banks


Landscape culture

Re-structure minds

Travel into the crevices

Of natural vulnerabilities




The backdrop of curiosity,

The poison of consciousness,

The mind’s secret playground,

Filled with childish


Lusting transmissions,

Pulsing wickedness


The Weight of Existence


We travel

Body to body

Transferring our hurt

Until no one can carry us
