Who won, and with what poem?

I don’t know. I have a hunch that it will be someone from a protected class – person of color, etc – who wrote a poem about oppression or THE ELECTION.

In a way I hope I’m right. I’ll have a clear understanding of why it beat me out, instead of worrying that someone might have actually written a better poem. Which of course is as likely as anything else, but I’m too fragile and petty to handle that. Publication, Compensation – New West Havens

Your Say

Let's be clear.
Black is the absence of color. White is the imprismed presence of 'all' colors.
No one's skin color is black or white. Dark brown to near colorless albino covers the skin color range.
Best to refer to others as Bob, Jeff, ... Harry ... I prefer Harry since we all feel harried at some time.
