Tyrek Greene


[to Trayvon Martin’s Mother]

my birth was a sunset stranded

in January—

my exit was full of red blushed skin

and Indian hair.




a revolution baking summer streets with static

and you can’t save me from it, no matter

the kiss hug and “don’t you think you should come home” text

how much you want to shove me back in you/

i’ll never fit again.
