थाई | Thai

By and | 1 October 2016

We walk to your home
on a clear night

We don’t think about being Aboriginal

You retell
a non-racist joke you overheard
while waiting for the ferry

I’m sure people think it’s funny

That you’re white
blacker than me

I don’t think about it

As we pass the Thai place
the aroma is sweet
it overcomes
