It was assumed that the south was a thing that took place somewhere else We grew up in a town that our parents just found on a job search and liked it quite well Who had so many friends who arrived just like them and their kids were our kin for a spell It was assumed that the south was a thing that took place somewhere else Like the feeling of home was a book on a loan from a college town private school shelf We took in every chapter with interest and laughter but never quite a sense of ourselves A dangerous narrative, haunting, imperative Led us little kids to believe That the place we were from shed a sheen we should shun Like the salt of the sweat dripping down from our sleeves It was assumed that the south was a thing that took place somewhere else Like the sun that went down on the edge of our town progressed no further west as it fell And on visits to relatives couldn’t quite tell cause our pounding heart sank as they swelled It was assumed that the south was a thing that took place somewhere else As if Jim Crow geographies didn’t haunt all of the streetscapes we’d come to know well And not just the old neoclassical mansions we passed or the high school had histories to tell I mean the segregate sounds of that old college town Ring so loud to me now I must say As we worked all white restaurants Trash-talking debutantes our nascent class conscience’ obnoxious displays It was assumed that the south was a thing that took place somewhere else And maybe it was which I say just because we weren’t noticing where power was held Captivated, the capitol’s capitacratical white liberal logics prevailed It was assumed that the south was a thing that took place somewhere else Multiracial resistance to greedful ambitions, cast out in revisionist spells power concedes ‘bout as much as it leads as we started to see for ourselves It was assumed that the south was a thing that took place In a retrograde rendering of absolute space As though everything left in the world wasn’t traced By production, subjection, resistance, escape Seen squarely through this disidentified gaze And through textbooks and t.v.’s, our modernist ways could never quite focus, our participating renewing… rejecting… affirming… negating…
