After Charlie

After Charlie*

After Charlie,
folks will look at folks’
differences, perhaps
not even aware what they are doing.

Folks will look at folks…
Mistrust & fear
not even aware…. What are they doing?
Apprehension–  Apprehension,

Mistrust & fear
will drive hesitant (clandestine?) reactions.
Apprehension. Apprehension.
The “Are we Charlie?” question

will drive hesitant (clandestine?) reactions.
Are you Charlie? Am I?
The “Are we Charlie?” question,
I cannot answer.

Are you Charlie? Am I?
The right of it all?
I cannot answer.
Perhaps I think differently.

The right of it all?
Differences?  Perhaps…
But a lot will change,
after Charlie.

*Charlie Hebdo
