9/24/2011 / Poetry
I gather in your skin
Your eyes once downcast at a future
In this land
I shame knowing
My whiteness shines brighter
In the scheme of life but
The arrival of a new President
Brings a face full of shade
Ingested with pride
No longer at the back of the bus
KKK except Martin Luther's
Slow shuffling to new heights with
Higher mountains to overcome.
(c) Richard L. Provencher
