I Say

Should I dare to express why
white men embrace our flag
of Saint George – why a Mail
headline will slight Meghan –

what some fans’ll mither as
knees are taken – how easily
they deride that facts matter
[after a few lagers] – should I

speak out about easy racism
from mouths of those I meet
along a town’s flinty streets –
or stay quiet – & let mephitic

voices utter whitened belief
as I turn on my heel? A quiet
disconcertion will follow me
whatever we presume to say
