this summer i was invited to participate in a poetry project with www.lamentforthedead.org
[[from the website: LAMENT FOR THE DEAD IS AN ONLINE COMMUNITY POETRY PROJECT WHICH WILL MARK THE DEATH OF EVERY PERSON KILLED BY POLICE THIS SUMMER, AND EVERY POLICE OFFICER WHO LOSES LIFE IN THE LINE OF DUTY, WITH A POEM]]
and this is the first name and story sent my way. the article, from which all i know about this 30-something year old man originated.
would you like to join the project? the organizers are still seeking poets to join in the lament.
