Excerpt from Measuring For Balance by Author Demitri Tyler


Switchblade plunged into a budget
pink slips in our mailbox
more cops
sardine packed jails
prison barred schools
our pockets bleed nickel dimes quarters and dollars

Today’s and tomorrow’s

Our children bleed inspiration education
future dreams
this is how we bleed
politicians use words like
to explain where the promises go
to explain why we bleed
we are never told which organ was hit or
where to apply pressure to stop the flow
