At Harlem Hospital across the street from the Schomburg the only thing to eat is a Big Mac by Samiya Bashir
"Here we are full-circle returned. I was researching in New York when Zachary Schomburg's poem 'The Carousel' buzzed into my inbox. Schomburg is my neighbor, the first poet with whom I read after relocating to Portland, and I couldn't escape the remix of that language into my own very different experience—in this Black body, in this particular moment—of the first person, of plurality, of the 'We' and its necessity for survival. I can hear the record scratch at the first line as it sings a shared American experience: while two poets may live in the same space, negotiate the same language—the same names even—the paths our bodies and minds must take diverge long before the day's first breath." —Samiya Bashir
