"I believe, against any grotesque wickedness, love remains overwhelmingly more powerful than hate, the simple truth is stronger than elaborate lies, ugliness in the world ought to be combated with beauty. We must never fight fire with fire, but always fight evil with poetry." - Micah Bournes, from "Take A Seat", in Fight Evil With Poetry, Anthology, Volume 1, edited by Micah Bournes & Chris Campbell.
Micah's deliberate poetry is a deliberate act of love, spoken with deliberate form.
Micah is one of my favorite poets. He was in Roanoke last night with Shane Claiborne to shine loving compassion on the darkness in our world.
