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.

Daniel Heyman's Abu Ghraib
Thank you, Daniel Heyman, for being our ears, to hear the stories no one wishes to believe, and for etching those voices of people who were tortured in our name, etching them into us. May the tortured somehow find relief; may we never rest until the torturers--and those who condoned and encouraged such acts--receive justice.
