Dominique "Rem'mie" Fells
They speak of this entity…… Justice
She sounds wonderful
Closure say she has the potential to heal wounds, dry eyes, and tame hearts
When can we meet her?
Please hold Closure says, next caller
Hello?? I’m looking for justice! Can somebody introduce us?
No, Closure tells us. You must earn her
Earn her? Ok I’ll recruit her good friend Accountability
No need. He’s on vacation until further notice
Vacation? This ain’t no 9 to 5.
Ma’am you’re getting angry. Please calm down. I’ll let you know what u need to do before meeting the untouchables
Step 1. Report your loss door to door
Door to door?? That’s the media’s job!
Ma’am the media is on paternity leave… indefinitely
Indefinitely?? Who is the partner??
Justice, aka the untouchables. Keep up.
Well, what is Justice pregnant with???
A pause, but most time she miscarries for your kind
Step 2. Protect the truth your eyewitnesses share
Protect from what?
Accountabilities cousin…. reasonable doubt. He’s on the clock 24/7
Ok that’s fine as long as there is no step 3. Justice comes in now, right??
Hello?? Closure?? U there? Justice?? Accountability??
For the women that didn’t get a hashtag, never made it to the news, or received their justice
I’m sorry we live in a world where your death is overlooked
As if you haven’t moved mountains and saved lives for a nation that’s so quick to sacrifice yours
As if every black woman before you hasn’t already paid the price
This unrelenting debt of blackness
You mattered. You’re loved. You deserved better.
And I know it’s not enough
Enough would mean that you’d be standing here
Enough would mean that you and I still had the possibility of meeting through our shared dreams
Of connecting through our shared experiences
Enough would mean equality, not blood money!
Ur memory was stolen from us and replaced with the broken record of injustice
Ur humanity is worth more than serving as a social conscious
Don’t lose hope though. Allow me to remind you of the magic that is Black Women
Similar to an anastomosis, we intersect in a beautifully complicated fashion
When it comes to matters of the heart, of our circulation, we are all in
A multitude of arteries and veins, advocates and allies
Serving the same volume, the same purpose
Routes for blood flow in the case that blood vessels get compromised
And paths for collective liberation in situations of oppression
They can cut our lives, this body, this intricate network of a vessel, but your legacies will always live through us
Same volume, same purpose
You’ll never be forgotten as long as we breathe
We are Breonna Taylor
We are Sandra Bland
We are Righ Milton
We are Dominique Rem’mie Fells
So lemme start the next hashtag
