|Screenshot from the Guardian this morning. Spike in hate crimes in India as well.
I tell my children not to wear a scarf? –
it chequered black or otherwise,
public seems to have stoppered its heart
some people have hate in their eyes.
I tell my sons what to wear and when,
they for now strictly shun the hoodie?
governments link crime with clothes and skin
police and the public seem moody.
my old father give up his upaveet,
my old friend stop wearing his skull cap?
powers see the world in black and white
paint in splotches of red on the map.
