She falls for

kindness,

talent,

good humour,

joy.

Is so surprised when

people point out skin,

when he wonders if she can handle

The Problem.

She squints to scrutinize for trouble,

but can’t see past the laughter

in his eyes,

the love in hers.

I suppose that’s privilege, too, isn’t it? The ‘not noticing colour’ has a positive connotation, but a negative one as well. What are your thoughts?

poem-#IReadCanadaDay February 19, 2020

I have been reading through your story

in short bits.  Your words hurt

my heart. It is so much work for some

people to survive from day to day. They

don’t deserve their painful realities, and my

opportunities are so apparent,

under my reading lamp.
