Dear Breathing Vessel For Love

Dear George
dear Tony,
dear Ahmaud,
dear Breonna,
dear Eric,
dear Micheal,
dear Lanqual,
dear Tamir,
dear Walter,
dear Freddie,
dear Alton,
dear Jamar,
dear Stephon,
dear Botham,
dear Emmett,
the millions I cannot name.

Dear beautiful body.
Dear breathing body.
Dear caring, wonderful, human body.

You are loved
and we will not tolerate hate
in your lingering presence.
You deserved life...
You deserve a peace.

I will not stop fighting
until all your human bodies are free
from hate and injustice.

You are a shining candle,
in the coldest of nights.
A relief of darkness...
in the violent, blinding white.
