George Floyd

I am haunted by the image

of him calling for his mother

as he lay dying

with the left knee

of a white police officer

pressed into his neck.

The white police officer

had his left hand in his pocket

and stared straight

at the camera that filmed him

as if killing a black man

was nothing worth noting.

Nothing to see here, folks.

Move on.

I write a blog foremost because I love to write. I have lived with depression most of my life, and I blog some about that, but about a lot of other things that interest me, too, such as greyhounds and kittens and our dying planet.
