walk [btown]

when the male half of the remarkable ensemble that invented babies
back-rammed out of his driveway real quick à la that charlottesville cray
and I ducked as the Doulas sticker on the spotless white babyinvention van
brushed my stumbly old man pants making my heart skip a beat and
reminding me I've been killed on this block before
and I did not like that very much the first time
it hit me all over again
walk is not a thing you're meant to do around here
because these cars have got places to go
and you're in the way is the sort-of law in these parts
just like carrying guns because as the Good Book says
if you're white that's your right
and also your sort-of speech
which must always remain free said the mayor
addressing the parlous prospect of
next week's Murder The Marxists Many Militia March
as everyone dove for cover in the name of the sort-of law
not forgetting the first rubric of the Age of Cain Diet
that the rich would eat the poor
if the poor tasted better
