what it must
be like to be
inside the mind
of a runner
who survived
unscathed today

at being
fast enough
or slow enough
to be lucky

at everything

how close
did you come
to being

of a statement
someone tried
to make on
patriot’s day?

here come
the fingers
pointing to

no matter
how many times
a white man
has been responsible
for a domestic act
of senseless violence

it is those
with brown skin
and dark hair
who will feel
the brunt
of “random”
security searches
suspicious eyes
and closed minds
