Work Woes

Whiteness masked as coloured-ness is not quite as violent as whiteness parading around as itself
But it does make me wary in the same
Guard your shit, and watch what you say
Way that white supremacy does


‘The bus’
When I was too much
Too Black, too full of myself
You made me road-kill

‘of color’
Womanhood in shades
Browns not quite dark, too light for
My kinda treatment

‘Do you know who I am’
I come from niggas
Ex-slaves, and segregation
No stranger to me
