Dear Poetry Aficionados,

Poetry & Poets in Rags blog

This is the second to last issue of Poetry & Poets in Rags. Next week's will fill ten years, since this column was first rolled out on July 25, 2003.

This week's headlining story is one that crept up on poetry. It's about the death of Trayvon Martin, the one who killed him, George Zimmerman, having been acquitted this past Saturday. Rita Dove has written a poem called "Trayvon, Redux" and the periodical RYOT has published a Langston Hughes poem called "Kids Who Die." Two of our Great Regulars, Seth Abramson and Adam Kirsch, have written different and differing essays on this as well. The case, for all its first-glance someone-shot-someone mundanity, has caught the heart strings of the country, the world, and now of the poetry world. Poets are walkers. May we please walk to the store and return home without being stalked and shot by the neighborhood watch?

We have dozens more stories and poems than these that are linked to in all three of our sections, News at Eleven, Great Regulars, and Poetic Obituaries. Thanks for clicking in.
