A poem.
Happy Rosa Parks Day!

    It's 1977
    She walks on
    Takes her seat
    All the kids look at her
    Watch her

    She gulps, shivers, trembling
    Clutches her backpack
    Sweat runs a line down her back
    Hiding in her jacket
    -a small pride flag

    The others come on
    The popular girls
    The ones whose parents are anti-gay
    They look around for seats
    She avoids eye contact

    Confidence trembles
    Small roots are ripped up easily
    The popular girls can't all find seats
    They go to the driver
    Who turns

    "You'll have to walk home,"
    he snarls. "Sorry."


    All she knows is fury
    They wouldn't do this if she wasn't gay
    Sarah the lead girl looms over her
    Calls her names

    She stands up
    She feels tall
    She feels proud
    She says No

    "No what?"

    "No you can't have my seat."

    *she grows up and is an activist*
