"Black Magic." Mikhael Johnson, (2020).

When we say Black magic

It is not a pathway for you to fetishize Blackness

To hyper sexualize Blackness

As part of your twisted fantasy

Black magic is reassurance 

Reassurance that our Blackness is golden

We demand the space 

To celebrate 

A part of us that is constantly greeted with disdain

We are not mythical creatures; 

we are human beings

We will not fall victim to the lies and complexities

Of your white supremacist pixie dust

Do not try to fuck with our Blackness

We are not trophies to be displayed

Do not mistake our magic

As a part of your bland spell

Lacking of all seasoning and spice

This magic is our essence

It is within our rights
