Difference Is

Folder: 
Black Poetry

.

Difference is a world nuclear irradiationed

glowing in the heavens with no one to see it.

Or, the difference is one and half more years

or five and a half more years of racism.

ignorance, and illiteracy.

.

The actual difference is as clear as a

mirror and what is seen without enhancement,

what is unrehearsed, what is pure. Bathed

in our shame or faults, humans survive

and consider differences.

.

And when the decisions are made

and the shock wears off, if life-possible,

we will pull ourselves up as if puppeted

and stringed, to declare the heart

is pulsing and choices will remember

the differences of the past.
