The Ameriblack Man

I can’t wait for the next two or three generations…
to DIE.

White people fear; Asian people fear; Spanish people fear
Self-imagined fear
Self-conjured fear
Fear conquers

systemic issues

Self-driving cars; auto-driven egos;
Nationalist-driven xenophobia
Motivated by toilet flushing diarrhea
of the mouth.

The American Black Man:

cooler than all the rest
desired more than the rest
worshiped more than the rest
duplicated more than the rest
emulated more than the rest

pilfered from more than the rest
discriminated against more than the rest
resisted more than the rest
abused more than the rest
incarcerated more than the rest

twisted systemic issues

always on the grind, for they can never
rest
for fear of other people’s fears.

Recently moved back to the States after living 16 months in Vietnam. I write to remove the thoughts trapped in the cobwebs of my psyche before the spider envelopes me whole.
