Bill Newby
Eight Minutes and Forty-Six Seconds
In memory of George Floyd (1973-2020)


Eight minutes and forty-six seconds
is enough time to unload a dishwasher,
walk around the block,
say your vows, kiss your bride
and walk up the aisle.

It’s sufficient
for deciding what’s right and wrong,
asking for a breath,
speaking to your mother,
and changing your mind.

In this span one can light a fire,
acknowledge systemic racism,
recite the names of victims,
and decide that enough is enough.

During the ticking we can remember
that America is a fragile idea,
peaceful protest is a right,
police are not above the law,
and empathy knits communities together
while only bullies seek to dominate.

There’s room in eight minutes and forty-six seconds
to tell a complex story,
decide that the future must be better,
and start to make that happen.
