A tasteless frozen pizza from a wood oven restaurant.
The only Black face in a sea of staring hostile pale faces who simultaneously ignore your presence.
A ringtone on loud in the middle of your meditation.
A refund with no apology because white privilege makes mistakes and we all have to bear the cross.
Those two ticks to show you’ve been acknowledged but dismissed.
Message received loud and clear but in through one and out the other.
Waiting on you as you ride up that hill an hour late;
Watching as you finish that pointless youtube video instead of helping with the housework
I’ve become a Victorian housewife as I holler about the fucking cobwebs and dishes
Maybe my ailments will put me out of my misery like a Victorian orphan.
This is adulthood.
Constant fucking disappointment.
