My job was having a poetry contest whose central theme was kindness. I didn't submit anything because of WP fragility. Here is what I wrote:
Unicorns and Lollipops
Scent of sprinkles and the shine of rainbows
What bursts at the heart of kindness?
When I step outside my door
There's nothing resembling sweet
I inhale the spilled blood of boys
And maneuver around bodies at my feet
When I look at news
the television lies to me
I see no kindness
No kindness knows me
These days sweet is bitter
For a Black girl like me.
