10 Shots To Freedom: Alva Braziel & Amerikkkan Treatment


Image via ammoland.com (titled “America’s Gun Culture, We Are America”)

10 shots ran
through the body
of Alva Braziel
because gun rights
don’t apply to black
and blackened bodies
in these United States
unless
Of course,
we are speaking
About and traveling
the tunnels Bullets
Cut through black
flesh
undeterred by myths
of law and order
and sprang forth
the birthing of some
sort of blue life
mattering and existing
anywhere besides the realms
of white anxieties
