Blueline and Red Thread: Under the Skin, I

at twilight
three white crows on the wire ...
his words linger,
Don't get all P.C. on me.
It's tribal, not racist

face to face
with a group of skinheads
in broad daylight
we raise our middle fingers ...
me and my shadow

Note:  "Under the Skin" is the second themed section of  Blueline and Red Thread, the first collection of sociopolitical tanka."  And you can read the preceding tanka here.
