When I realized I loved you
it was not romantic
Not flush with pink roses & wine
but rather normal
Rather standing in line at CVS
clutching a four pack of peanut butter cups
& cold medicine
It was a quiet realization
Like checking the weather I was currently standing in
"Huh. It’s a bit warmer
than I would have guessed.”
Black people: "Well fuck ya'll then. We can go start our own shit that's just for black people and nobody else. "
White people: "...... "
White people: "Wow, excluding people based solely on their skin color? That's really racist and I am personally offended. How would you feel if we did that to you?"
