IF A TREE

"If a Tree" is an excerpt from my manuscript A Ligature for Black Bodies. These poems explore what it means to see the felling of black and brown people through the dash cams and body cams of the police officers that shoot them. It also seeks to highlight the ways in which these videos from police body cams and dash cams mirrors the taking of pictures and the sending of lynching postcards.
