This is a short piece I wrote and shared previously on Self Taught's Wattpad page as well as Linkedin in order to share the discourse as far as possible. It is important that in this age of fighting for rights long since denied, we come to accept and acknowledge every sort of person that has suffered the slings and arrows of colonization's thought-puddle.

Okay, so imagine you're having a dream.
And in the dream, you and a friend are going to a coffee place.
You're really nervous on the way there, and you don't know why,
but that's normal...
for a dream.
Anyway, you get there
and you order,
and then your friend orders
and then you get a table, and they bring the drinks over
and you're pretty sure you've got the right drink,
until a barista asks you if you want extra milk in your coffee
so you look down,
ya know, to check,
and you realise that all you have
are unground coffee beans.
they could be coffee
they are the basic necessities needed to make coffee
but what you have, are in fact, beans.
So you try to explain it to the waiter,
ya know, about your beans,
and he gets really mad
because he thinks you're trying to insult him,
and his milk,
and his job of delivering milk,
cause your friend took the milk just fine,
so you must just be being difficult.
So you lift up your meagre palmful,
like look, man, see?
All I have are unground coffee beans
no amount of milk will turn this into coffee!
But now the barista is yelling at you,
and your friend looks embarrassed,
and the other customers in the shop are staring at you
because they think you're making a scene
over a damned cup of coffee.
And that's when you realise
that they can't see the beans
that they think they see a cup of coffee
in your hand
where none exists
because that's what they think hands are for
and they would see it--
that same cup of coffee--
even if all that was left of you
was a severed hand
full of beans.
