Disclaimer: This is a poetry blog, not a political one. Although it’s hard to separate the two. When discussing politics on this blog, it is not intended to endorse a particular political point of view or candidate. It is simply to react to what someone else has done or said or to comment on some aspect of poetics. If I were to express a political point of view outside of the realm of poetry it would likely be from a libertarian POV. But since this is not a political blog, I’ll have to claim the Fifth.
