Just a comment -- poetry by Luke Leonardo
A million comments are made every day
ideas meant to be passed on
A lie masquerading as a truth, a guise for what they won’t say out loud.
Just a comment that a biracial child would be confused about their place in the world
Just a comment to justify why they shouldn't exist
to justify why Whites should marry Whites and Blacks marry Blacks.
Just a comment that falls on deaf ears
an idea seen as the guise for the hate it is
an idea putting distance between two sides of my family.
