Unlearn

Estimated Reading Time: 1 minute

We belong to the generation Brought up in suspicion. We were taught to suspect the other, The dark skinned, The ones with red dots, The slight edge to the accent.

One Night Stand

Estimated Reading Time: 1 minute

Heartstrings

I played the right melody for the wrong one too many times. Plucking these heartstrings to tunes, they’ve wanted to hear.   Strumming to their humming. Smiles it brought upon their faces.
