six years ago, a few days after the boston marathon bombing, i published a quickly-written post to my blog called “poem for dzhokhar”.
it was meant to be a short stream-of-consciousness reflection for my small community of readers; then it was picked up by the outside world. the moment was painful. for a lot of reasons.
this is the audio recording of my poem, “empathy is nothing”. read the full backstory HERE and if you feel moved, share.
