The poem, 'To The Republic', in the Apr.24,2006 issue of The New Yorker was not only a perfect statement, but almost the saddest I have ever read. To think this group in power has shamed the the heroes that have gone before is beyond belief. Thanks to Frank Bidart for this wonderful poem.
Guilty Of Dust
up or down from the infinite C E N T E R B R I M M I N G at the winking rim of time
the voice in my head said
LOVE IS THE DISTANCE BETWEEN YOU AND WHAT YOU LOVE
