The Experience



The black or brown experience is impoverished.
So, for sure, is the white experience.
The human experience.
This is not a popular opinion.
Fine.  This is not a popularity contest.
The white experience impoverishes the black experience
a lot more than the black the white.
Humans impoverish their own experience,
and that of others.  Interference.
It crumbles at our touch.
Experience collapses into expectation.
Include the lines that limit
as well as all that lies beyond them.
Include the mind that draws the line.
