‘I’m tired of people asking me to smooth my name out for them.
They want me to bury it in the English so they can understand.
I will not accommodate the word for mouth.
I will not break my name so your lazy English can sleep its tongue on top.
Fix your lips around them.
No you CAN’T give me a stupid nickname so that you can replace this gift of five letters.’
be still, my first generation heart.
This. is. incredible.
