Do I make you nervous?
Am I threatening?
Did I walk suspiciously down the block
Where my hands to high,no?
Too deep inside my pockets?
Are we still residual-ed by our past
Or can we move on?
This American community
Is still struggling to include me
Include you, fine, make do!
Make yourself useful, be elite,
Refined, righteous, rightness, whiteness
–devoid of all things associated with nothingness
Bright and shining, and inclined for attention
Be the gods of this American soil, but excuse, me
While I make my own way.
