Fucking Scream: A Poem Response To Alton Sterling And Philando Castile

Reeling.

Nauseated by dizziness, I sit and steady myself to start functioning again.

“It’s impossible to believe,” I say to myself.
“It’s a horrific tragic heartbreaking agonizing failure of humankind and I hate it.”

I consume endless content, attempting to digest insight knowledge awareness empathy anything. I want to absorb knowing how to support you.

I can’t.

So, instead, I’m just gonna fucking scream about it. I’m gonna make sure everyone around me hears what I’ve absorbed and I’m gonna take in as much more as I can stomach because they need to hear it and I need to hear it and maybe it helps but really it’s all I can do to keep from

Reeling. TC mark
