hashtag letters: Black lives matter
yellow all caps
against a background of Black
clarion call to a people under attack
rousing all nations to stand up, fight back
time’s of the essence
the Center cannot hold
Black girls portraits on the walls,
Black boys struck down by
hundreds slain already,
they can hardly keep track.
and when will my white sisters and brothers just step out of the Trap?
