A Little Essex Hemphill to Start the Day

I dance
in the search light
of a police cruiser.
I know I don't live here anymore
but I remain in this body
to witness....

Who will save
our sweet world?

- Essex Hemphill, from "Heavy Breathing"

Good to see this poem remembered. by a poet "Who has the guts
to come forward
and testify..."
