Poetry Friday

What happens when you’re black like dirt?

Does it make you guilty
like the one that pulled the trigger?
Or innocent like a new born baby
And just learning how to talk?
Does it sink like a rock?
Or float and hang
like the lingering feeling of defeat.

Maybe it just drags
like the days in jail.

Or do erupt?
