juxtaposing the black boy & the bullet by Danez Smith

one is hard & the other tried to be

one is fast & the other was faster

one is loud & one is a song
with one note & endless rest

one’s whole life is a flash

both spend their life
trying to find a warmth to call home

both spark quite the debate,
some folks want to protect them/some think we should just get rid
of the damn things all together.
