Day 42 (December 29, 2015)

….no
you may not
get that toy gun
for christmas
and no
you cannot wear
that hoodie
and no
you cannot
walk that hood –
its gentrified
sentryfication
will
kill you dead
and no
you cannot
use strangulation
as an excuse
to reach
for your neck-
that blue clad
noose around it
is protected by
state rights
and no
you do not
deserve
to reach jail
you WILL
die in
thebackofthebus
and no
you cannot run
or put
yourhandsup
you WILL
be shot
14 times
inthe face
andthe
chest
andthe
ass
andthe
crotch
andthe
backofthehead
and no
you cannot
expect to live
if your transcendence
of race
and gender
and fear
gives them
a hardon
and no
your death
will not
spark a movement
or
new crow laws
because
your end
cannot be
contained by
a hashtag
or
a poem
and no
your death
will be nothing less
than
the death
of my baby
and yet…..
