Lips to Ear

I was laying in the sun
and just walked in,
3 words in mind,

People of Color

When I got to Home Depot
to choose paint colors
from the Rust-oleum
white paint choices

they only had in stock
white navaho white
navy & almond.

The whites I saw lined shelves
with 100’s of othercolors.

Now, listen. Your ear.My lips.
Who decided white people
are not like the restof us

P.O.C. has over 130 meanings.
Only one of the P’s = People.
That one excludes whites.

Please help me out here,
someone, somewhere,

and then Navaho White
is more brown
I’d say.

did you listen
and hear that?
I’m just curious!
