Day 32 (July 31, 2015)

…..it’s bland
now isnt it
when another sandra
lies dead
in those prison
slaughter sheds
a shudder
a murmur
and we gear up
for the next factory line
murder
so this is my
coitus interrupter
for the next horror
for the next
made-to-order
newspaper headliner
making the dead
even deader
im done
trying to prove
that our lives matter
im done
with a nation
establishing terror
by scapegoating
the muslim other
im done
trying to wonder
how much louder
and sadder
we’d have been
if yakub
had been jacob
or jake
or cecil
im done
with rhyming this shit
im done
totally.
done.
and yet…..
