Poem: while black

     
                            Waller. Texas, USA

  
The woman

Sandra

driving while black

has words


the woman

Bland

driving while black

refuses


Black Lives

to snuff a cigarette


black


says she can


LIGHT YOU UP, screams the traffic

smoke


throws her 

slams her head

I can’t


dead in her cell



in my car
