Tattoo -- Poetry 2011

Find any obvious signs?

Don’t have to look hard:

gender bias,

weight bias,

age bias…

what a bummer.

Assume you will have bias

dance across your path:

white hair,

overweight,

low income,

worn clothing,

androgyny…

makes me grouchy.

Perhaps a little tattoo

on the right  palm:

Stop;

and on the Left:

Be Nice…
