In the midst of this national crisis of fake news, disinformation and pathological lies, it is an honor to have my poem, Just The Facts, published by The Turnip Truck(s) Writers Resist series. This poem was first read at the Arlington, VA Writers Resist reading. In this rather dark poem, brevity speaks to our processing of the bombardment of ‘information’ that we endure on a daily basis.
In a comment on their Facebook page, the editor describes the poem saying that it “cleverly reflects our unsettling, distorted political reality”. That certainly is what I intended.
