The A1 Verse: America, you ode for reality!

By Thomas Gaulkin | September 13, 2021

(Bakhtiar Zein)

Every so often, a story published on the front page of the New York Times is so well written, meaningful, and appropriate to the Bulletin’s concerns that small snippets of it, properly chosen and arranged, produce something more than journalism, something that approaches … poetry. That blessed coincidence occurred September 13, 2021.

We suspect it’ll occur again.

G.O.P. Seethes, But Every State Requires Shots

(from the original by Sheryl Gay Stolberg)

this is America.
We believe in
in children
to resist the
fury, the fear,
the boiling hell
of un-American

Together, we make the world safer.
