Volume 32, Number 2


How lovely the sky is after a few days 
of rioting

hues of bleeding coral simultaneously merging 
and bursting with fury and hurt

in protest of what we deserve
but may never have

as if it knows this won’t be the last time
a black man dies from blue hands 

and so we look up to savor every last second 
as if looting the sunset 
                                  for all its worth.
