Optics

videos of police
behaving like decent, kind
understanding human beings
run viral online
loved and liked and thumbs-upped
while on television
commercials air
about respect:
on the street
a cop not engaged
in murder
shoots hoops
with
of course
some blacks
and the cop is
of course
a white
and this is ‘everything’s fine’ porn
it’s ‘the whole criminal justice system
ain’t totally corrupt’ porn
it’s ‘we can trust
our local police’ porn
they show us this
because sadly
they must
due to the norm
day after day
being quite a different display
of getting fucked
