30/30 an interactive piece for April 8th for Walter L Scott

I am too angry to write a poem

too angry about the shooting of

Walter L Scott in North Charleston South Carolina.

Shot in the back while running away

although that’s not what the police report said.

Handcuffed and left to die face down on the ground

although that’s not what the police report said.

No attempt made to resuscitate or deliver first aid

although that’s not what the police report said.

 

Now think of an emotion and insert that, then think of the name of someone you love (your best friend, brother, sister, partner) insert that in Walter’s place and insert the name of where you live in place of North Charleston South Carolina.
