I had originally meant to read this poem last week, but as I said then the events of the weekend had moved me to write some new poems, and they were very much of the moment. Hopefully they hold up over time as much as this one has - in my opinion. You may or may not have been paying attention to the back and forth of the 2012 election back when it was happening, but I was, and a slice of that moment worked its way into that poem, dreamt up on a morning's commute, back when I spent so many hours to and from work. This week, it's "Capital Improvement."
I want to hear what you think of the podcast, whether it's a specific poem or the format, or whatever's on your mind! Leave a review or a comment in your podcast app, or catch me on Twitter @Lefthandrob.
After listening to the podcast (or while listening), visit one of these sites and donate for the cause, because All Black Lives Matter and my fellow white (and cis) people we need to get in the game:
Donate to Black Lives Matter
Donate to the Souther Poverty Law Center
Donate to the Equal Justice Initiative
Transgender Law Center
The poems will continue to flow, but so must the Justice.
