Poem: while black

     
                            Waller. Texas, USA
  
The woman
Sandra
driving while black
has words
the woman
Bland
driving while black
refuses
Black Lives
to snuff a cigarette
black
says she can
LIGHT YOU UP, screams the traffic
smoke
throws her 
slams her head
I can’t
dead in her cell

in my car
