This Was Elizabeth Warren’s Plan All Along | HuffPost

Warren with fellow candidates Sen. Cory Booker (N.J.), left, and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (Texas) at the first Democratic Party presidential primary debate.

The policy system she built in her Senate office now fuels her 2020 Democratic presidential bid.

Warren’s approach is unique. If elected president, she won’t be testing out a new policy process in office. She’ll bring one that’s been tried and tested in her offices for nearly a decade.

Katerina Anghelàki-Rooke – Post-scriptum poétique | BEAUTY WILL SAVE THE WORLD

Poetic Postscript

Poems cannot be beautiful
anymore, because truth
has turned ugly.
Experience is now
the only body of poems
and the richer the experience
the better the poem is nourished
and the stronger it grows.
My knees ache
I am unable to fall on them
to worship poetry;
the wounds of my experience
is all I have to offer.
The adjectives withered;
only with my fantasies
I can decorate poetry now.
But I shall always serve her
-for as long as she wants me-
because only poetry can make me
forget for a while
the closed horizon of my future.

“Looking Out to the River,” Lorine Niedecker, Blackhawk Island, WI, March 1966 (image courtesy of the Fort Atkinson Historical Society).

” . . . poetry is especially important as a mode of inquiry; it accepts the necessity of mood to make sense of experience. Mood establishes a particular kind of bond between author and reader.”  – Martha Nussbaum

Lal Ded – I Was Passionate,

I was passionate,
filled with longing,
I searched
far and wide.

But the day
that the Truthful One
found me,
I was at home.
