Clap When You Land | Elizabeth Acevedo

You would think
coffee & condensed milk
would give you some kind
of light brown.
But I came out Papi‘s mirror,
his bella negra.
Thick hair like his,
thick lips like his,
thick skin like his.
When some of my cousins
from Mami‘s side
dissed me la prieta fea,
I never listened. Papi‘s
reminder in my ear:
you are dark
& always been beautiful:
like the night, like a star after it bursts,
like obsidian & onyx & jet precious.
