All We Want is To Be Free

I love people watching.

But today
I watched in Dumbo, in Fort Greene, in Flatbush, in Alphabet City, and in the LES-
The reality
of how

Free

White people Live

I watched

The Freedom
in how

They
Walk,
Ride,
Eat,
Drink,
Shop,
Laugh,
Speak,
Gather,
Grow,
Breathe
And I couldn’t help, but

Wonder
If they valued
Living in
The Freedom
That so many of us
Long for

I wondered so deep
I had
To
Stop watching

And

Look away
