Title

Kwansaba: Memwar for the Fallen & the Risen

Description

It's fall on Planet Ferguson where poetrees
shed leaves & tears onto storied &
varied colors of peace-scapes. Like Juneteenth,
jubilee & terror shade our memwars with
Emmetts, Oscars, Trayvons & Michaels. Till we
forge a seesaw of fallen/risen, marchin'
toward Gil Scott-Heron's "Winter in America."
