Hood Spotlight: Paterson, NJ (For Genesis Rincon #RIP) - a Tanka poem




Hood Spotlight: Paterson, NJ
(For Genesis Rincon #RIP 7.5.14)

Future’s bright, life’s good

Scooting to store in my Hood
Lost-ones. Shots. Screech. Cops.
Scattered shells, scooter fell - screams!
End scene - Never made thirteen

Hood Spotlight: Charlotte, NC (For Jonathan Ferrell #RIP) - a Tanka poem




Hood Spotlight: Charlotte, NC
(For Jonathan Ferrell #RIP 9.14.13)

*knock!-knock!-knock!* "Please help"
Crashed male at Bradfield Farms door
THREAT! Sound the alarm
Bullets swarm due to dark hue
Flag flown half-staff at FAMU
