Brown, muslim, male...

Brown, muslim, male
An interrupted body
the savage marker
of primitiveness
in need for his savior.

Brown, muslim, male
An interrupted story of violence
enacted on his body
through generations of enlightenment,
progress, and modernization.

Brown, muslim, male
wanting to make a living
with simple dreams,
interrupted through interventions
wanting to recreate an enlightened world.

Brown, muslim, male
simply wanting to be silent,
to be indescript and hidden,
interrupted through excavations
of the imperial gaze.

Brown, muslim, male
wanting to live
wanting to breathe
Silenced, erased
And lost.
