Knowing the Difference


Leave the sister and brother
with the yellow/gold
red/orange streak in their hair
yeah, leave them alone.
Traditions die slowly.
Culural patterns are never quite erased.
             ostriches
             cheetahs
             lions
             leopards
             honkies
We have always imitated animals.

Written by Carolyn Marie Rodgers (1940-2010)
