COLONIZATION

Date Written: September 7, 2017

i searched for the perfect jade,

royal green

enough to say,

hello mother-in-law.

 

it sits on the counter still —

a reminder

of the day you did not show,

his empty pews

echoing his loneliness.

 

so my picture had brought back

 

red british coat blasphemy

blue eyed bitterness

rage under a machine

of manifest destiny —

 

occupation of your soul.

 

that was many years ago,

when you were still living,

and i was the white devil

no fault of my own.

 

you never spoke to me then.

will you see me in heaven

or will my face still bear that memory?

    Unaware of colonisation by latest white generation, though enjoying the fruits deny the
    Responsibility like later UK politicians.
