The sun was setting strange and lovely as we were murdered
and I couldn’t close my eyes against it
I had to watch the blade come down over and over
had to know each wound as it was opened
count each drop of blood as it fell
collected in a silver cup
to be placed at the center of a feast
where reflected there in its distorted world
the guests waited patiently to begin their meal
Breonna Taylor should be alive right now. Her murderers should be in prison.
I hope Louisville gets through the coming days alright.
