Poem: Car Sticker: Tres Mali Scott’s Poetry and Short Stories

I saw a car with all kinds of stickers.

That’s not a bumper sticker, that’s a front door sticker.

That’s not a bumper sticker, that’s a back door sticker.

That’s not a bumper sticker, that’s a hood sticker.

That’s not a bumper sticker, that’s a roof sticker.

That’s not a bumper sticker, that’s a trunck sticker.

That’s not a bumper sticker, that’s a running board sticker.

That’s a bumper sticker,

THE BUMPER!

And This!

A man said This!

You wouldn’t believe This!

My own This!

That & This!

A Place Where…: Tres Mali Scott’s Poetry & Short Stories

A Place Where... Poem by Tres Mali on Tres Mali Scott's Poetry & Short Stories

A Place Where… Poem by Tres Mali on Tres Mali Scott’s Poetry & Short Stories

A place where…a solar flare is the sunlight in the sky.

A place where…sounds of waves and soft music causes the atmosphere.

A place where…the bird’s shadow is in the sand.

A place where…distant voices send everyone messages.

A place where…

“Wade in the Water” Short Story by Tres Mali Scott on Tres Mali Scott’s Poetry & Short Stories

Rural children of Bangladesh on Tres Mali Scott's Poetry & Short Stories

 Wade in the water children,

They gon’ take and sale you anyway,

Might as well run free.

They may not know you exist yet.

I had them in the field and went back to picking cotton.

You see my fingers, that’s over with and they are still cut up.

Wade in the water, little children.

They gon’ take and sale you anyway.

Might as well fun free.

Tres Mali

“Wade in the Water” is an old Negro Spiritual song the slaves in the field sang. I was a signal for those running from slavery to run.

The cotton plant has some type of stickers and those that picked it had damage to their fingers.
