Writing the Walls -

Not My Aunt and Uncle - Clara Lerchi

A perfectly smooth

rectangular prism...prison

slight lilac hue

but definitely transparent perches atop an unblemished perfect

white tabletop.

Lies.

How can this be a vision of perfection?

large White print:

Integral

White

PRONTO EM 20 MINUTOS.

Yes slave labor was

Integral to feed the

White monsters who wanted free labor

PRONTO EM 20 MINUTOS.

Maybe the decade has changed Maybe we like to think

great and lasting reform keeps us safe from the evil the guilt

of History.

This transparent

Lilac cube shatters easily throw it to the ground

let Uncle Ben and Aunt Jemima out...

they have their own families

waiting for their freedom

“Imagine All the people

living life in peace

You, you may say I’m a dreamer but I’m not the only one”
