Reggie IVY

The story of reggie ivy

starts in the woods

near a toxic bush;

hands were t-shirt high

when they shot him.

I mean to say his hands and arms

were as high as they were

the first time I ever saw him

put on a t-shirt,

he was 3,

well 13 when he died,

when they shot him,

hands up not harming anybody

just stopped to smell the roses.
