Pussy Cats are Angelic

Saffeeya left yesterday. Her one-and-half year contract finished. We had one last big lunch and saw her off
Bryce and I then decided on a walk; wrong timing: all of Treviso had just had the same thought.
Bodies rubbing; a dash to a foot free spot; we walked the striaght lane to find a coffee, and an empty space.-
something not known to be a rarity in Treviso. Except at 5 on a Sunday afternoon. (- and this being the first weekend after August holidays)

We walked back, to good ol’ Tiffany’s. Had a coffee; mourned the losses and more to come- am outta here soon.
And then we walked out and back towards Bryce’s house for Amorres Perros

Just before we got to Bryce’s front door, two black teenage boys rode past us cycling and hollered out- “Ciao Bianco!” – to Bryce
That is Italian for; “Hey Whitey”
Which is also not different from; “What’s up Nigger”– if it had been directed at me by two white teenage boys.

These racial slurs, even in such ‘ride-past’ incidences, continue to break my heart

So We Are All Different from One Another. Why is that such a big fuckin’ issue
