check youtube…

yesterday
i was surprised
when
an elderly
white man
yelled
at
the brown bag prophet
and
the prophet
merely
smiled
and
gave him
the sign
of the cross
as
his response
now
two things
were
surprising
to me
his smile
and
the sign
of the cross
first of all
the prophet
rarely
restrains
his responses
to
ignorant displays
of
racism
and
i know
for a fact
he’s not
religious
in
any sense
of
the
word
but
he told
me
that
he was
the designated
scapegoat
for
a hidden camera
documentary
on
racism
since
the fall
of
the american dream
then
he said
if you noticed
carefully
i did the cross thing
in
reverse
he smiled again
and
said
that was
a reverse blessing
