Colleen McKee on qarrtsiluni

Colleen McKee has posted a poem on qarrtsiluni that is a MUST-read. It is strong stuff, and may replace your morning coffee, and keep you wide-eyed all day. There is a podcast attached of Colleen reading the poem -- lovely.

Colleen would appreciate the accidental irony of this poem getting published yesterday, Shabbat. . . .
