"We Who Rise from Saltwater, Let's Sing"

A heroic crown sonnet by 28 Miami poets commissioned by the city of Miami in 2022. Below sonnet XII by Carolina Hospital and Nicole Hospital-Medina displayed at the metrorail in Miami on 4/12/2024 courtesy of O,Miami Poetry Festival.


















The Poetic Justice League’s founding members—Chris Green, Jan Bottiglieri, cin salach, and Tony Trigilio—asked groups of poets from across the country to write pantoums about America’s gun insanity and called them “semi-automatic pantoums."  I collaborated with poets Maureen SeatonHolly Iglesias, and Nicole Hospital-Medina to complete our Semi-Automatic pantoum, “America’s Rifle.” The poem is included in MYTH AMERICA by Anhinga Press as well.
