Second Sigil, A Poem

My these words be a sigil of protection
Against those who know me as a writer
And see me work a 9 to 5
Elvin and I have to eat

May these words be a sigil of protection
To deafen the voices of those who wield bullets against
#Blackgirlmagic #blackbrilliance and the like
This is our America

May these words be a sigil of protection
Against myself on the worst days
When self-doubt turns self-immolation
There is more for me to discover
