Stop killing us

repast.

scream so guttural it escapes through hardened lips as a whisper,
while children’s laughter floats like dandelion seeds; innocence before grief

vengeance settles underneath a heart suffocating it’s rhythm,
while america the beautiful faintly frolicks in stadiums;
honor before justice

pungent earth settles across gleaming oak welcoming a soul’s peace that’s been stolen,
while we bellow into hollow skies;
stop killing us.
