Another Name

And another name is said
And another
Tear is shed

A “suspect” shot
simply because
His skin
was dark
and his stalled car
was parked

A helping hand
maybe a
“Can I help you, sir?”
A smile, a kindness
instead of this
racist, controlling madness
And a man
Would leave
with a smile on his face
a warm feeling for the day
Instead of in
that cold
white
bag.
