Poems of politics and protest from a liberal/progessive viewpoint, written before, during and after the 2016 U.S. presidential election. "Every library needs an artillery shell lamp. / Not because books are weapons. (But sometimes they are.) / No. Because, let authors write books on books on books, / the shells always come in. No scribe / will scribble the savage out of us."
