Torture Song, tanka sequence

Torture Song


I saw my face
in a cell at Guantanamo
electrocuting
his genitals, my government
waterboarding

I saw my face
in Ferguson right after
being shot…
a commanding surge blasted
through the streets

I saw my face
in a man selling cigarettes
on a NYC street corner
screaming I can’t breathe,
and I can’t breathe
