It’s easy to say
“All lives matter”
when YOU never have to worry
about being pulled over
for a busted taillight
that isn’t actually broken
so you can bleed out on camera
the star of the nation’s
number one with a bullet
snuff film
your life streaming
by your girlfriend
who watches you die
for no reason at all
at the hands of men
who swore to serve and protect
everyone…
but
their definition of everyone
doesn’t include
people who look like you
