Two Years Ago Today... 

the caveat onus: twenty-three

beneath the veil of perfect meaning
fantastic tortoises
held out their arms like wings
then came the armies of tumbling water
giving birth to grey grass
where I no longer go
it'll take me 300 years to remember
that afternoon
what it was to ascend a staircase
whose only escape was face down
and whereafter we walked
recounting the stories to our children
the reasons no one came

Anne Cecil sent me a link to David Greenwald’s When the Saints Go Marching In, a three-minute YouTube video documenting the struggle and hope for the future of New Orleans. While you're there, sign the petition supporting Senator Dodd's Gulf Coast Recovery Bill of 2007 (S1668), which will help rebuild the infrastructure of the Gulf Coast that is still in shambles after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
