Big Hands I Know You’re The One

The white Women at the co-op are all the same 

They have the black feminist power fist tattooed next to quotes from tina fey

Knocking into my black body and stepping on my feet with a familiarity that’s centuries old

Then they smile at me and step into my conversations with that same ease
They tell me they just couldn’t help listening to me

White girl with TERF bangs and and an art school knapsack cranes her neck to lend her voice to my ear “it’s just crazy how capitalism co-opts blackness!”
I don’t respond but my eyes fix on her BLM lapel pin

White woman steps into my conversation Tracking the mud from her docks across my throat
