Missouri -Mia Leonin

Mia Leonin

Ferguson, you’re the Missouri I’ve always known,
the Missouri I was white enough to see from a safe distance –
Michael Brown shot and left for dead.

Missouri, your are the mid-west with a southern twang, home of Jim
the slave and his author Mark Twain, the betwixt and between of you,
the border-state brutality of you lives on.
