senior class project…

graduating senior

imagine
headlines
20-year-old black male
unknowingly
rapes
15-year-old white female
as
part
of
a senior class tradition
at
a private religious school
now
doesn’t that
just turn
your stomach
but
does the fact
the rapist
was
white
make it
better

the witch doctor…

witch doctor

he rattles fear’s bones
preaching putrid brimstone words
vomited hate words
the air foul with their intent
tis faith’s decaying body
