Im Schönen Amerika/Amerika the Beautiful

I’m honored to share that my poem, America the Beautiful, was published by Writers Resist, a literary collective born of the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election. Then it was translated into German and published again here. Thanks to Claudia Toman for translating!

Von Brenda Davis Harsham

Schulter an Schulter
mit Menschen, entschlossen
gehört zu werden,
hoch die Schilder
mit müden Armen,
in Tweets sprechen
zu dem Mann, der uns
den Rücken zudreht
und Millionen ignoriert
im ganzen Land
in der ganzen Welt.
Keiner kann erwarten,
gehört zu werden
wenn er nicht zuhört.
