from my fingers to a keyboard 
so forgive me if my speak
is somewhat long winded
if it has swirls and curls

hopefully you want to hear

Perhaps only the Othering
and Othered One Percent
instilling in their children
and future grandchildren
that extended family meals
are never an appropriate time
or sacred space
to speak of...
