White Complacency. I Am Sorry Dr. King.

I will run and run around the writer’s block

with a picket sign for equal writes.

This day I found little independence

while I raised my red, white, and blues.

The words inside have no freedom

to march down this white page.

Black letters s e g r e g a t e d.

No Martin Luther or King.

Even Nat King Cole

wandered around

less black keys

than white.
