“Minneapolis” by Rob Bracks

Conserving themselves

against the breeze

youngsters rest

trading dreams with

angels. The city

hauls itself wakeful on

talk of death, lies

extending into sunrise

unseen, unsought

Rob Bracks lives in Atlanta, GA. “Minneapolis” was written from memory and from a photograph about two weeks before the murder of George Floyd (RIP). This will be Rob’s second published poem as an adult, the other one being in the “We See Your Silence” issue of Rowdy Magazine. Find him on Twitter @robbiebracks
