Poetic Responses to the Election

My friend the indefatigable Anny Ballardini has begun assembling an online collection of poems written in response to the recent US election. There is a call for further submissions, as well. (Anny does a lovely job, by the way, of presenting poetry online.) The New York Times did something similar last week, with poems from five American poets -- Ashbery's was the only one that moved me -- but in any case the collection developing at Fiera Lingue is much more capacious, generous, & daring than the stuff in the Times.

  1. Opps, blushing. Thank you very much. I missed The New York Times Collection, will see if I can find it.
