To mark Earth Day, the CTC and friends present a community recording of Unnamed Dragonfly Species by Juliana Spahr. We read as a reminder of two crucial things at this moment in our history:
– That more and more of the Earth’s vibrant species are becoming extinct or endangered all the time.
– That we humans DO CARE, that we all feel hopeless and helpless at times, but that we are capable of doing more. A huge thank you to our international community of peers, mentors and esteemed poets, for rallying together despite the distance around this important message.
HAPPY EARTH DAY!
