One man protest

His sign said

“police THEIR brutality”

I went to honk in support but

my feeble push went unregistered

against the steering wheel so

I gave him a thumbs up.

Alone on the corner in the Capitol

with no supporters

the one-man protest looked right at me

but didn’t smile. Maybe I was too

yuppy-looking in my work clothes

or maybe he doesn’t have any smiles left.
