Warning: potentially triggering content.

A single homicide has a dozen victims



by the whore who lived upstairs,

‘usta stench, but nothin’
like this!’

your disordered flesh.

The cops thought  

you were Black

when they

found you,

no face,

 no fingerprints…

Tall order lady,

greasy spoon waitress:

what did we do–

to deserve this?
