Books aren’t meant to be read
In libraries or reading rooms
With leather couches
They’re meant to be read on rocks
Squatting next to brick alleys
In the street
Hunched
Back to the world

And when you are done Then it is time to rise
& turn
& reach out to those still marching.

-excerpt from K. M. Douglas’ book of poems, Cities of Blood
