Gentrified

Today?

Today I live in a neighborhood where people often say hello in the morning

Where every other affirmation ends with “my sista”

I live in a neighborhood where people often say hello

Today?

I saw some construction though

Soon they’ll be saying “espresso?”

Check my stub and I’m not considered lower class, but looking at my pockets? Damn they about to put me on my ass...

So I Imagine

I emphasize imagine

A different path

Why won’t this last?
