Paradox of Bias

Paradox of Bias


Black Girlan African-American girl about seven

and her mother at the theater next to me.


yet, I never want to consider

that little girl

as black, white or other ethnicity.


yet, I am ensnared by

the paradox of

us and them?


how do I

rise above

the enigma of bias?


how do I see

the little girl

and the rainbows

in her eyes?
