Ahmaud, Breonna, and George

the names remain unbroken
lifted by fire in the street
lifted by men’s fists
and the chants of thousands

they are living
in the rhythm of the disturbed rest
in the murmur of souls stirring
that have never stirred before

wake up and roar
roar as you’ve never roared before
