concerning April 3rd
April 26th: A special thank you goes out to Sahm King, co-writer of the blog We Drink Because We’re Poets, who recently included my poem “the standoff” as one reference to his heartfelt and inspiring article about poets and artists changing the world. King’s article On Poets and Action: the Voice of the People and the writers of the blogs that he referenced in this post are inspirational and have caught my fascination.
“Do we have a power that we are sitting on, untapped, unused, and stagnating while we pine over our own woes and fears while so many suffer around us? Or is it a lofty thing, a high ideal, this wishing to save the world from? Can poetry save the world? Would any listen? Is saving the world even realistic?” – Sahm King.
