Day 342 – comfortable whiteness / privilege

Day 342
8:30 pm

comfortable whiteness / privilege

The collective laugh of an
amphitheater full of
White people
sounds like
older age,
men,
recognition,
and
satisfaction

I hear it
from
time to time
at concerts and plays

It
is double-chinned,
hands holding elbows
across an amplified belly,
sitting back in his bench seat

It
is
odd
in its annoying
familiarity
