The collaboration that gave birth to this blog began around 1991, with a painting based on Lance Henson’s poem: Another Song for America.

Another Song for America

driving west on ohio highway 76
just past the kent state turnoff

a soft rain begins
god damn you america
what have you done to your children

the wind speaks their names
any way you breathe it
