"When I Think of Tamir Rice While Driving" (Reginald Dwayne Betts)

U.S.A. / 2016

"I am bound to be haunted by the strength that lets Tamir’s father, mother, kinfolk resist the temptation to turn everything
they see into a grave & make home the series of cells that so many of my brothers already call their tomb."

This fantastic and sobering poem was published in Poetry Magazine in April 2016. You can—and must—read it in full here.
