A new poem of mine up on George Murray's always interesting NewPoetry.ca
I wrote it after the recent school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
And yeah, “poetry makes nothing happen” but it is one part of us processing things and thinking through the experience together.
And if you haven't seen it, watch the remarkable speeches and interviews by the teen survivors of the shooting, powerful voices calling for change and refusing the status quo attitude that its a political gridlock. The link also links to ways that one can help.
