did i hear you correctly? did you say “coloured”? did you refer to people of my colour as “coloured”? did you really do that? are you really that ignorant? i mean, yes, there are things we all don’t know. there are things some of us may never know. but come on! really? coloured?
perhaps it was her uncoloured attempt to be kind
“black” is too harsh
well you can take your kindness and place it gently into the ocean
but if that’s too long a drive, write it down and burn it
to destroy it
just don’t share it
not with me
not with anyone
we’ve all got colour — haven’t you seen the crayola giant pack?
there’s a crayon just for you!
and colour this
