Alliterations of Allegorical Authority
Microagressions of material existence

Transcend temporal transitions

Enlightening essences eloquently enunciate

Silenced by the semantics of solitude

Empowerment ensures emancipation

Treks through terrestrial transgressions

Poles of positionality pervade

Attempts of authenticity aggregate

Regrets of reification render

Vehement validation of versed voice

Resistance against racialized representations

Beauty buttressed by boisterous benevolence

Preemptively patronized by paternalism

Denigrated by dominance of deficit discourse

Warrants of western wizardry

Disgraced by daunting daemons

Ancestry of assimilations annihilate

Ethnic epistemological existentialism endures

Countless counter-narratives collide

Indentured ideologies of intent

Haunted houses of hierarchical hypocrisy

Impart imperial intelligences
