FRIDAY

“It is raining blood today.
I open my book and write Black Lives Matter
to acknowledge the unanswered injustices.
I write Blue Lives Matter
for how can any human
be separate
from humanity?
I write All Lives Matter
but stare at these words—
Don’t they invalidate the others?
I stand conflicted
as the clouds continue to bleed.
I try to erase the last phrase
but find the blood
has already
drowned my words.”
