A poem a day for 2015 - for day 98 - Go ahead

Michael Slager shot Walter Scott eight times while his back was turned and I do not have more words for another poem about another black murder. I don't. I have the same words. The same words I had for all of the other black men and women before. America does not need to send me another message about how she feels about me and my people. She does not. Michael Slager has been charged with murder but ask me how hopeful I am that he will be convicted. Ask me.
