Lanette Ware-Bushfield

Headroom, Heirloom

1839. Inoculations. Ancestral

sweat, shipped betwixt, recoiled fears 

La Amistad. Ahmaud.

.

Bruises, bangs, shoelaces, clangs.

Systemic shame, running blame.

Marquez. Arbory,

.

Patroled abductions running mutiny

Arduous games amok, numbers, names.

25. La Amistad.

.

Centuries canoe aboard horrid rain.

Acidic repatriation squats upon burning ankles. 

Ahmaud. Marquez.

.

Hierarchal threats. Invisible regret, 

equality shot, liberty whacked.

Arboury. La Amistad.

.

And then there was, sir,

George. Floyd. The

alpha, Omega. Beginning and.

.

400 years.

40 acres.

4 more years. 

.

End the Silence. 

No. More.

Tears.
