This Week (Which is Every Week)

 

Angry white folk, as usual,

defend the tenacity of margins,

wave orange and blue tatters

 

while nine men and women deliberate

the validity of the ring on my hand. Somewhere

in South Carolina, and beyond, some meditate:

 

What is forgiveness?

 

Nine gravestones are chiseled,

while the antisocial media argues

guns were never to blame.
