Abstract

This poem responds to Wallace Stevens’s “Like Decorations in a Nigger Cemetery,” and it intends to force a dialogue with his poem and with the author’s childhood surrounded by the casual use of “that word.” The poem also contains borrowings from Jean Toomer’s “Beehive,” and Rachel Eliza Griffiths’s “Black-and-White Dusk at Limantour Beach,” engaging them in dialogue with Stevens, and with the author.
