Right After the Inauguration

Writers knew that their words were actions--
along with protests, organizing, voting
Each story, every poem--a revolution
Political satire-- leading to social change
Each sentence a path to activism
Each story
Every poem
The words matter
These words voice resistance

Within two weeks after the inauguration of "45" two new magazines of resistance appeared on line.
                     From their home page..
         "In the increasingly convincing darkness / The words become palpable…" —John Ashbery
         "Let us go forth with fear and courage and rage to save the world.” —Grace Paley
