for my non-black readers

I will not
write you a poem
so you can take
a minute of your day,
say: Yes, yes, I

So you can feel
included, centered;
so you can think I
am too.

We shouldn't be.

Right now,
the world doesn't need
another poem from me;
there are plenty of poems
already written
that haven't been read enough.

Support Black Poets here:
(This is just a starting point.)

I am pausing my own publishing
on this platform for the moment,
out of respect for, and in support of,
the Black Lives Matter...
