Congratulations, Florence. It's a terrific poem—wordplay and world arm in arm with just enough menace to keep them powerfully linked.

That's a really nice poem. Sophisticated and playful at the same time. Fun to read and with a point. Thanks for the sestina!


I really enjoyed reading this - a thoughtful, playful addition to "Yes We Can." Congratulations on the well-deserved recognition! Mikaela

Yes, yes, yes! I love these beautiful words. Rollicking, clever and smacking of truth.


Florence, Thanks so much for sending us your wonderful, clever poem.The wordplay was brilliant, and the message was loud and clear. You deserve the recognition. Gloria
