Two Poems by Tim Murphy

Abolish


The police 

can’t be 


                        reformed 


anymore

than their guns 

can be 


                        unfired.



A Mirror and A Knife


The pandemic

like all oppression

still unfolding

not equally felt


a mirror and a knife


reflects, deepens

divides carved

long before

a virus arrived.
