I Want This Yesterday

~

There’s No Good Reason

Not To Have Body Cameras

No Ifs Ands Or Buts

If They Disagree

They Are A Criminal

Whether Police Or Man

Hot Under The Collar

`

last night

you set fire

to the embryos

of your future children

the only pictures

your grandmother

had of your childhood

you burned

a million dollars

in bearer bonds

your uncle left you in his will

the uncle who was watching tv

in his storage unit

the one you burned down

“it feels like Beirut”

`

The Policeman

Who Was Going To Save Your Life

Two Thousand Sixteen

`

Tried To Stop The Fire

Died Of Smoke Inhalation

Ferguson Last Night
