blanket

a hooded vagrant
gives vague rants
after unlawful detainment
unsure of the proclivities
that started the process
systemic
enigmatic
behavior
survival to the one
that behaves for
settings
multiple mask
masquerading
the hood carried
multiple meanings
from acknowledging trayvon
to burning crosses
in Southern lawns
we mourn
til morning
when joy comes
by way of abilities
to inhale air
in days not promised
find solace
in modest
appearance
peer
amid
generations
that set standards
that blanket
and warm cold hearts
