Throw Certainty Out in the Air like a Lasso

Reflections on Alton Sterling

Hatred – a deafening siren
warnings of a terrible twister

out there, it’s only one. Earth
tilled by a machine We need topsoil,

moisture, fertilizer to grow a single weed
left bent. Throw questions out in the air

like a lasso. Shady, when the closed rope
loosened, it’s what we know of the truth.
