Luisa A. Igloria: “This poem is a double abecedarian written on July 3, in response to the dismal news we get everyday—this past week it was continuing concerns about health care, and the clear effects of climate change. We also welcomed our first grandchild just three weeks ago—a joyous event that nevertheless heightens my anxieties about our shared mortality and future.” (web)
