The Reverberations from 9/11 Seem Likely To Continue For Many Years at Camel Saloon

1 Oct

This is the cover of Culture Shock: USA, a book that is supposed to help acclimate new immigrants to the customs and etiquette of America. It’s also full of sweeping generalizations about the country that I live in, some of which are so true, I don’t know if I should a laugh or cry. It’s been fascinating and inspiring to read.

So I started writing a chapbook of poems entitled How To Be An American. The title of each poem is a line or two lifted from the book.

And the very lovely Russell Streur over at Camel Saloon agreed to publish this one about the after effects of September 11th.


Peace, Love and Poetry,

Ally
