Poetry Month Part 2: Cold Copy Cadence


Trying to catch up. Another dead black man, but hey, I am sure we’ll find some reason he had it coming, right?

Cold Copy Cadence

Shots fired
in between
sound bites
the punctuation marks
of another short story

Why read
between lines
of their lives
the abstract is enough
for me to judge their worth

Should have
but could not
lived up to my expectations
and down to my level

Keep it
let me choose the narrative
let me make excuses
let me forget the sad
