Life is too short to pretend to not like pop music
Ferguson Police have dogs and shotguns. The unarmed crowd is raising their hands.
For anyone not following the Mike Brown story on Twitter: a 17 year old black boy named Mike Brown, who was supposed to start college tomorrow, was shot to death in Ferguson, Missouri by police while jaywalking. He was unarmed. He was shot 9 times.
Initial media reports claimed that an 18 year old black man had been shot and killed while fleeing police after shoplifting.
People in the neighborhood, including members of Mike Brown’s family, came out of their homes and began to protest, shouting “no justice, no peace,” and keeping their hands in the air.
Media reports claimed that a violent mob quickly formed around the shooting location shouting “kill the police.”
Spread this. Tell the truth about what happened to this boy. Tell the truth about what is happening NOW. The police and the mainstream media is painting him as a criminal, and his community as a violent mob.
SPREAD THIS. Don’t let them lie.
We used to kiss
As if Time
Was something that we controlled.
We were the
Conductors of Time
When our bodies collided,
You kissed my
As if I was made of
Grasped my skin
As if I was made of earth.
Dripped off our bodies
And released into the universe
With the whisper of our moans.
Blanketed in darkness,
Secured in blissful ignorance.
“Please don’t let me go.”
I moan into a night full promises.
“I won’t. I never will.”
You whisper into my heart.
I guess promises are harder
To keep in the dark.
