who is the criminal

i live in the house of a gentrifier
(as a temporary one myself)
in the neighborhood
of the people displaced
to the edge of the city
and we fear
their presence
their looks
their ‘criminality’
while the real criminals
are at the center of the city
chilling in their
large apartments
sipping thousand dollar whiskey.
