“The Bluest Eye: Pecola’s Prayer

A series of Lunes”

Inspired by Toni Morrison’s, The Bluest Eye

By Kiarra Lynn Smith


God, where’s my blue eyes?

Give me them

To be beautiful

My indigo eyes

View justice

As invisible

I absorb disgust

Hurled my way

For my skin is Black

Blue can change my world

Halting screams

From this fragile frame
