Vox Populi: A Public Sphere for Politics and Poetry
When we found out our daughter had gone deaf,
I did not question God’s fairness—
not out of faith
my whole life
it had always seemed
that at the next moment
terrible news would fall from the sky–
as punishment, perhaps, for a particular transgression
but more likely
whatever you think could never happen—
And in this way,
you know clearly
there is a world you do not see.
