I kindly submit to brown little Delhites

make space for you and me,
make space for brown and
all its shades, for buff and
beige and burgundy, shake
off the dust from your minds,
and take in copper, chocolate,
rust, but do not let just these
define, who you could be and I,
let black in and let whiter skin
also meet the eye, let fair and
dark and all in-between be also
seen - what's the big fuss? - as us.
