pandemic

sitting in my car

outside grocery store

pondering

being a tall dread locked black man

wearing bandana covering

my face

pondering being shot

just trying to pick up some eggs.

pondering.

Ahmaud Arbery

was just

jogging.

they could see

his face.

they bullet-lynched him

2020 citizen's arrest style

just because they could trap him in their space.


pondering.


viral

white-fears

more deadly than Covid 19

in this deranged

red white blue place.
