“Etheree for Heather Heyer” Accepted by Poetry South

In this week when news organizations have been falling over themselves to report on the death of wealthy, antifeminist, homophobic, antisemitic Vietnam War supporter and North Korean cheerleader Billy Graham, it is fitting to recall the sacrifice made by Heather Heyer.

A short, simple etheree seemed a suitable vehicle for a tribute to someone whose life was brief because she simply did what was right and knew no other way to be. I know my poem can’t do her justice, but then no poem could. I am happy that Poetry South will be printing it this December.
