watching them watching me

(at a Cracker Barrel no less)

reminds me

us versus them

is real

even when

many of them are so profoundly harmless.

for too many white people

being white

makes it possible

to pretend

to not see

the “darker brother.”

never really color blind

they see skin color

through the lens of their distorted

comfort zone—


in white-people-time.
