Elijah McClain

I have been in a state of mourning

I don’t understand why

I didn’t know until now?

It happened so long ago—

I think people’s interest is largely self-involved,

I can’t pretend as if

I don’t see myself in him

I wish I could understand why Elijah McClain

Is dead and why they did all that when he explained how

Introverted and peaceful he is, all the way up until he died

Inside his own mind— forcibly

Injected with ketamine.

I find it disturbing that anyone is able to sleep.
