created equal

do you believe everyone was created equal?
i asked my therapist
of course, she replied, don’t you?
of course, i said with a grin
of course

so you think doctors and lawyers are equal?
of course, she replied
and a lawyer and his doctor dining together is okay?
of course, she replied

do you think doctors and janitors are equal?
after a brief but noticeable pause
she replied they were
and a doctor and her janitor dining together is okay?
anticipating my question
she quickly confirmed it was

and what about a white man and a woman of color?
are they equal and is their dining together okay?
of course! of course! she retorted
we don’t live in a segregated society anymore, edwin!

again, i posed the question to her:
is everyone created equal?
a question which she now refused to answer aloud
only the nod of her head

Colored Applesauce

 

Purple dragons, green snakes make me weak in the knees like Marilyn Monroe, whose IQ was higher than Einstein’s (no shit), but that’s relative to the mean of 100. Somewhere someone said: “Don’t ask what your country can make out of steel, make wool instead.” Freaky economics put me in a blackened mood, but black women turn me on cuz they’re strong like steel wool. And nutty professors from Georgia (or is it Armenia?) make me brown cuz that’s the color of nuts, and nothing makes me yellow…I got over that color a few years ago now I’m a big, bad 165-pound motherfucker, who ain’t afraid of talking shit and voicing his opinion, like rack-in-pinion steering which makes me red cuz it’s transportation and I’m going to catch a red-eye flight to nowhere. Nowhere is white, cuz most white folk don’t know jack shit about survival. They have props to keep them alive. The rest of us are on a naked center stage, where the grass is green and the sky is blue. And the rainbows are named ROY G BIV. I prefer apples to oranges and I would dye for indigo. Violets. Why not purple?? That’s my tour of the primary colors, a book about the Clinton’s. thank you, thank you very much.
