More and More Poetry. Why Not?

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.
