i want to
let me remove the hashtag from in front of her name
trying to remember the name of the one they got
this time; ain’t nothing been trendier than honey kissed corpses since
women crushed everyday.
“light you up”
knees to rocks
doesn’t lose herself amidst the dirt and uniform and taser gun and violence
five years young and in the backseat
28 years and smoking
and nothing brings death closer to a black woman’s door than her
nothing takes less time than a warrant for black
on a road in Texas.
and no blessing
no Miranda rights read
will find her in the backseat
five years young
or in the front.
28 years and alive.
black and unwilling to surrender
at the heaviest of
