Poetry by LaQuisha Banks

Finding Myself

We must, someday, learn:

                     that we are all
                                  no one.


The Twenty-First Century


Envy ambition

They turn against the redeemers.


The Sun

She follows me and promises to wake me

Penetrates my skin to burn

Cleanses me of terminal chemicals and chronic feelings

She watches over me: her constant love language.
