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?
