Happy to share some snapshots of the poetry reading for the launch of the anthology “It can’t happen here” curated by Moonstone Arts Center. Thankful to the EIC Larry Robin for selecting my poem for this powerful anthology.
In Words of Larry Robin
This anthology is about the reflections on January 6, 2021 and the state of America. On the same day that an African American minister and a person of Jewish heritage are elected to the Senate from the state of Georgia, giving the Democratic party control of both houses of congress and the presidency, Donald Trump incites a crowd of his supporters to attack the capitol. People waving Confederate flags, breaking into the building, leaving two pipe bombs and several people dead. “When Fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.” Sinclair Lewis There are 52 poets in the anthology.
My poem “Time’s Up” got selected for the anthology. It was a powerful and moving reading and I’m proud to share space with such esteemed poets.
You can buy the book here.
Happy Poetry !!
