A poem a day for 2013 - day 201 - Numbers

I move furniture around
Dust bookshelves
Add books
Buy plants
A new table
I tape artistic postcards to my file cabinet
I need something to do with my hands
I need something to do with my heart
With the fear and anger curling in my blood
Another black man killed
Another cop goes free
Another baby dies
Another drive by shooter gets away
Another day
Another .44, .22
