A senryu in dedication to the memory of George Floyd, whose tragic death is mourned by us all.


''I Can't Breathe!'': in Memory of George Floyd

I can't breathe! he cries,
over and over again.
No use. Dead. By knee!

In the brevity of your text one can read the enormous bravery, frustration, hope for a better life and dignified death. 'i can't breathe' represents all garlands of anguish, represents our cries, represents us and who we are. Nice one, cheers.
