I See You: For BLM @ School

I see you

Side-eyeing

Me

In my tee

Black

With white

BLM messages

At School

You

Plural and singular you…

Funny how language works

You are they and we do not resist

This new way of being both singular and plural

Gender affirming

Life affirming

Love giving

One

My colleagues

My students

My teachers

Thinking…oooo, that’s so racist

Nah…

Your thoughts scream so loud

Your stares so hard

We remain invisible

Though our fight to be seen

By you

Remains the cause of the crimes

That make

ZERO TOLERANCE

Policy polite in your brown eyes green with envy to blue

Class divided

Ways of experimenting on

Us, me, we

Push back to be heard

We matter,

We the smallest group of other in the building by census though not…

By identity we band together though not…

All together banded

Black lives matter at school

For children and teachers

For we…

The least of these

Have the greatest need

To be seen and heard and valued and loved…
