ALL THE BLACK BODIES

ALL THE BLACK BODIES

When you remember Mike Brown,
remember Islan Nettles.

Remember the black queens and the studs,
the trans women and trans men,
the disfigured black bodies
that disappear without funeral,
without name,
without mention.
Struggle to rename their genocide
with a word your heart can handle.
