“As people and as poets we put a lot of stock in words. America was built on the backs of some beautiful words and has struggled since its existence to live up to its own promise. We have always believed that great art, great poems, great people, shine before us to remind us what we are capable of in our finest moments, what the worst of us has wrought, and to keep us ever mindful of where we are moving.”
