“There’s A Black Girl on the cover of Seventeen Magazine”

iCRIED
the moment i flipped the channel
iCRIED
in the moments
when all i could muster was
buzzards, please pick my live carcass
iCRIED
recalling the moment
in 1991 when a New Jersey GIANT
intercepted a Superbowl
to remind U.S. what war really is
iCRIED 
long past ‘the so 17 seconds ago’ moment
as caffeine tweakers hooked on ‘smartphones’
condescended on substances Artistes abuse
iCRIED
for these moments
reveal i never prepared
to be alive at forty-five
iCRIED
like the moment
Radio Paradise and ZIZ’s same song
told me Robert Bradshaw was gone
iCRIED
in the opening moment of
“My Love is Your Love”
hearing Bobby Christina say
“sing it Mommy”
iCRIED
through the moment of sleep

made possible
because of
Tired Tears
