Kindness or a meditation on the Clapback Left unspoken.

Because I am kind.
   I will leave you with your edges.
Because I am kind.
   I won’t say, bitch, I see you.
Because I am kind.
   I will smile and let you snap your fingers and roll your neck.
Because I am kind.
   I won’t remind you what words mean.
Because I am kind.
   I won’t call you a dumb hoe in front of your friends.
But, but my dim darling.
Remember.
While the dialect of my people spills out of your mouth and runs like shit down your chin.
   Bitch we see you.
We.
See.
You.
   And we don’t forget.
