Poetry from J.J. Campbell

White man with a beard and glasses and a beard and a mustache. He's in a room with some music and movie posters on the walls. He has a Black Lives Matter tee shirt with purple text on a black background.
one deadly hoax
 
whispers turn
to screams as
the number of
dead start to
rise
 
this sure is one
deadly hoax
 
it's amazing
to think such
incompetence
still exists in
this day and
age
------------------------------------------------------------------------
parading around as a man
 
purple daydreams
 
the coughing lady
will kill us all
 
just another child
parading around
as a man
 
thank god she
had an abortion
 
any child of yours
would destroy
society as we
know it
 
another sunset alone
 
destiny is a dancer
that teases her big
ass in your face for
a few extra dollars
 
if you're lucky
 
she'll slip off her
mask and lick you
 
you don't want to
know where that

tongue has been
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
from the inside out
 
remember the crazy ones
 
the ones that would call
at four in the morning
because the world was
burning from the inside
out
 
the ones that would get
you so hard you had to
let go on the side of the
road
 
the ones that would ask
for a little dirty talk right
before the meeting with
her boss
 
the ones that told you
you aren't special
 
you have no talent
 
you will be as worthless
as your father
 
that your death will be
as meaningless as your
life
 
the ones that loved you
only to change their minds
 
the ones that stole from you
 
owe you money to this day
 
the ones that never bothered

to remember if you still exist
----------------------------------------------------------------------
the day before thanksgiving
 
the experts
say we might
get some snow
the day before
thanksgiving
 
given the
pandemic
and how
easily it
spreads
 
a little havoc
on what is
usually the
busiest travel
day of the year
 
is probably a

good thing
---------------------------------------------------------------------
checkout lane eleven
 
this fine as fuck
black woman was
working checkout
lane eleven at the
grocery store today
 
i wasn't like these
other lazy white
fucks,
 
i helped her and
bagged my own
groceries
 
she thanked me
over and over
for doing so
 
i laughed and
said not all of
us are evil
 
i'd like to think
she was smiling
under her mask
 
she doesn't want
to know what i
was doing under

mine
