I'm seasoning a sonnet: Dream of Freedom

I'm seasoning a sonnet here in my
Cocina. I MAY invoke my right to
Dream of Freedom, some old style Due Process,
a respite from Racialization, Please
for Mr. Omi and your homie, Winant,
tell me, Doctors of Knowledge, how did we
reverse the Exclusion Act and Jim Crow,
por ejemplo? My theory is measured.
Oh no! I've  left on the oven, talked
too much about my Feelings. The Sauces
are next. Throw in some vegetables and Spice.
Let it simmer, it is an Uncommon
Recipe. Dinner's ready. The Dipper
was given to me by the Milky Way.
