Further thoughts on the cultural labor of poetry and art. Not merely "is it good?," but "what has it accomplished?"...reviews of recent poetry collections; selected poems and art dealing with war/peace/social change; reviews of poetry readings; links to political commentary (particularly on conflicts in the Middle East); youtubed performances of music, demos, and other audio-video nuggets dealing with peaceful change, dissent and resistance.

"Having a Coke With You"/Happy Birthday, Frank O'Hara, Ave Atque Vale
Thanks to Edward Byrne for sharing this O'Hara gem. Was any poet more childlike/adolescent in his avant-garde joys?
