Humbling Moments

Folder: 
Black Poetry

.

Police take a knee 

with protesters

and marches turns

peaceful with

few incidents, no

flash grenades,

no more tear gas.

.

New York City

Police hugging

protesters. I think

we found 

the good ones.

.

Los Angeles 

burning on Melrose

and looting of 

high end stores 

on the Rodeo strip 

arsonist set ablaze.

.

Officer recorded

on the Black neck

of Mr. Floyd 

is under suicide

watch.

.

White Grand Rapids,

Michigan grandmother

filmed with baseball

bat cradled in her

withered fingers

was determined

to stop protesters

in her neighborhood.

.

I was hoping for 

a revolution demanding

and obtaining great

justice and fair

and equal treatment

under the law.

Instead, USA is

fed up and wants

to change a bit more

than 400 years

of racism.
