Posting poetry is my response to the murder of Phylicia Barnes. Phylicia disappeared a few days after Christmas last year from a neighborhood in Northwest Baltimore. Her body was found April 21, 2011 in Port Deposit, MD, where it washed up from the Susquehannna River. I cannot put into words the horror I feel. I did not know her, but she must have a beautiful spirit because she has inspired me to read more poetry than I ever have in my life.
