Reading Time: 1 minute

Maybe you forgot,
maybe they wanted
to tuck it away
and let it rot,

maybe this is just
the eventual 

riots couldn’t kill it,
couldn’t crack it,
nothing can stop it,

who named this shadow?

Who hid it beneath?

Don’t you know
it’s everything bursting
that we tried to sew up?

Can’t show,
can’t show,

another hood
called a hood

because we tried
to hide 
it away.
