Draw the Blinds

[Sappho the Second's poetry competition] A short poem about society's views and general injustice.


1. Shut it out.

Outside the window

a woman is

    beaten upon

          spit upon

a black man is 

    unfairly judged

          unfairly punished

a gay man is 

    hated at

          jeered at

but none of it can touch me

if I just 

    draw the blinds

          close the curtains

shut it out.
