COSMOPOLITE, by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: Not wholly this or that
Last Line: Contains me.
Alternate Author Name(s): Tremaine, John
Subject(s): African Americans - Women

Not wholly this or that,
But wrought
Of alien bloods am I,
A product of the interplay
Of traveled hearts.
Estranged, yet not estranged, I stand
All comprehending;
From my estate
I view earth's frail dilemma;
Scion of fused strength am I,
All understanding,
Nor this nor that
Contains me.
