Homosapien to Homosapien
brush by each other,
sidewalk with shimmering
waves of heat.
Both expelling beads of sweat,
stop and turn to each other.
Wordless wariness
hangs in the air as they circle,
barriers erected
Maybe built on a foundation
of stabbing memories
in quicksilver recall.
Melanin an unfortunate veil,
in coffee colored complexion vs.
ivory.
Cling to suspicions feeding
hate, fear-
keep your barriers close to your chest,
while power-hungry increase the
yawning distance with their
catch-phrases and
known scripts.
