Thank you so much for sharing my poetry , +David Leonhardt my special Canadian friend. I feel the book it came from today especially important on this Independence Day of your neighbor to the South.
Poetry from by +Carolyn Howard-Johnson

It’s in the Knowing

I want to know. . .
how my marrow
ran in their bones. If these Cycladic figures
inspired Picasso, flat-faced; Miro,
expressionless. But Quakers
who stitched sunbonnet girls
on quilts knew Keros not at all,
nor farmers and fishers,
nor those who pillaged their ancient
shards. Mayans pulled faceless dolls
from husks of corn, never knew this one,
broken arm, vagina visible
between its open legs, harp in its lap. Still
it music melts over five millenniums
to touch me,
allow me to put
my face on its.

Crying Walls

Near Jerusalem, razorwire
coils a brutal line
imposed like walls
Lennon imagined
might one day disappear.
This one much like the first wall
I unexpectedly came across somewhere
in memory, an ocean away
marking its territory
East from West, the wall
that called my husband to arms,
just in case. Another wall,
cleaves Irish from Irish. Foreign
walls, but now a new one
crawls from Baja,
through mountain passes
along the Rio Grande. Walls.
Chains-linked. Wire-barbed,
Krylon-smeared. Feeble,
useless, unholy billboards,
anything but mending walls.
