saw two black men reach into their pocket

deep, like they were digging for the ratchet
in big black sweat pants,


their thick violent moustachioed brows
and menacing big black veined hands
disappearing, then swelling and bulging


coming on them was a sad white boy


he was sure to get done– blackened with a toaster
he shifted from k swiss foot to penny leather loafer
he got what was coming, served in thrust


change, niggardly dropped into his palm
white boy begging on his knees


obama kept his promises
a change is going to come. pause
