Is poetry also
like young babies and regressed patients

There are mix-ups
like subject matters
about which externality
and internality
cannot be decided

Is it called white privilege
these clean sheets:
|a horrid empty space|?
|a friendly expanse|?
|harmonious mix-up|?

Your white is not my white

pro/intro-jection is its mechanism
seeming already to decide
about privilege it has nothing to say
about race

projection of bad | object
introjection of good | subject
these aggressive renderings
sub/ob-ject leave
no space
for mix-ups
and silence becomes something to
include in conversations

it’s not enough to want to talk
about race
that’s what
preverbal means

not enough to want
to talk
enough to want
