I’m doing well with my resolution to read Becky’s Poetry Friday posts. This week she hit me with a whole lot of Langston Hughes. Great stuff. I love that political stuff for exactly the reason he writes it (explained in her intro). And what a wonderful way to give insight into that experience.
Rose also posted a poem today. One by her partner, Brett. It is also political and amazing. So much of the post-election discussion in the online circles I hang out in has focused on the (so-called) defense of marriage propositions that this one felt particularly relevant.
