See Hear Speak

This is what happens
When I can’t sleep.

I’m up before the Sun.
Barely fell asleep, not five hours ago.

Frustrated from thinking

A loved one or I could
Lose the right to breathe and
Be seen as a target instead

Walking to work, the store,
Existing online or
Within the walls of home

We judge, and
Are judged by

Skin color
Speech
Clothing
Labels

Bleed blue
Bleed red

Speak English
Habla español

Pray that prayers are enough to

Stop the words from attacking

Stop the eyes from gawking

Stop the hands from

Covering eyes, ears, mouth

See no evil,
Hear no evil
Speak no evil
