At George Floyd Square: Imagine — A Poem by Christopher D. Sims

Imagine the air at George Floyd Square;
imagine the breathing, imagine the healing
that has been initiated.

Imagine the energy at George Floyd Square;
imagine the relief, the sense of peace
that has been generated.

Imagine the rejoicing at George Floyd Square;
imagine the conversations, the chatter,
the feeling that Black Lives Matter.

Imagine the celebrations at George Floyd Square;
imagine the connections that are being made,
the futures that we can create.

Imagine the beauty at George Floyd Square;
imagine the hugs, just imagine the smiles,
the victory that goes on for miles and miles.

Imagine the gratitude at George Floyd Square;
imagine the children and their thoughts,
that we fought hard at all costs.

Imagine the songs being sung at George Floyd Square;
imagine the harmonies, the music being created,
the movement for Black Lives was elevated.

Imagine the tears at George Floyd Square;
imagine the prayers. imagine the meditations,
this was all for you brother George — wishing
your spirit deep peace and salutation.
