Poetry: Some Poets (Maybe) by Niki Perez

Some Poets (maybe)
We are wordsmiths 
clear as the sky
taught light is God
and dark is not day.
But a boy
abused by his back;
she forced to say no—
it’s uncomfortable to say
simple words out loud 
like I need your help to feel
the Sun on my face.

Niki Perez is a mom, a commercial real estate guru, and a word slayer. She makes no apologies for being an alpha female, though her sword fighting skills need practice. Once, Niki was an owl of literature and creating writing at FAU. You might find her pen in Lavender Bones, From One Line vol. 2, and Bullshit Lit Mag, among others.
