Independence Day 2017

This superb poem was written by Meg Files, my old writing teacher at Pima College. I just read it four times. The line “died uncounted on Election Day” sends shivers through my body. Hold me, Captain America!

Meg, who is also a novelist, is the best creative writing teacher I ever had. I highly recommend for any budding writer her book Writing What You Know (How to Turn Personal Experiences into Publishable Fiction, Non-fiction, and Poetry), into which a lot of her wisdom is packed.
