To Dispel

Many white men talk to me like we’re in a secret club
Many white men talk to me as though I have somehow been wronged
Many white men talk to me like I’m seeing what they see
Many white men talk to me like this is how it’s supposed to be
Many white men talk to me like everyone was born their way
Many white men talk to me about what whiteness means
Many white men talk to me like they don’t know white’s origins
Many white men talk to me like they can’t hear another tale
Many white men talk to me like water isn’t wet
Too many white men talk to me like they ain’t afraid of death
