White Supremacy looks like Table Manners  

when you’re a white child 

and everybody says 

No Politics At The Table 

you don’t understand 

the priority 

you are being fed 

is to not offend 

the white faces 

seated around it 

but now I am a woman

seated at the table 

with Black friends 

sick to my stomach

because my family 

ate up white supremacy 

for dinner 

and I thought

it was polite
