Radical Possibility


When we as white people are impatient defensive patronizing condescending dismissive

when black folks interrupt our comfort

our security our agenda our belief system

our time our vacation our workshop our rally

we are denying the truth that sits in black bodies

that are targets

that have been targets

that know an experience that we watch from afar

that we have seen on a show, a social media post, witness in lived experience,

even in the quiet conversation of lovers and partners it cannot be in our bodies

it does not sit in our experience

when we feel confusion, frustration impatience

even anger

yet choose to listen to breathe to contemplate

before we speak

or speak up in protest

or sometimes choose not to speak

we spark radical possibility
