Poetry presentation recited by Paul Terranona
"A Benediction for the Madison Common Council"

What kind of time is this for poetry?
What kind of time is this for poetry? All the people quivering with rage.
The lattice of frosted branches arching over my street catches me, but can't hold me.
I will see the tracks of our neighbor rabbit. I will see the hawk surging down the
off ramp. I will see a child of God, ravaged, in the median
in the sleet, and keep driving.
KpThe little girl was so quiet in her dirty pink coat, asking Why? And Please? Her mother just as quiet and unsmiling.
by Paul Terranova

With excerpts from the introduction to Leaves of Grass
This is what you shall do: Love the earth and sun and the animals,
This is what you shall do: despise riches, give alms to everyone that asks,
This is what you shall do: Stand up for the stupid and the crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God,
