4. John Copley Alter--Hard Rain, for Rachel Corrie

4. John Copley Alter--Hard Rain, for Rachel Corrie

The colors of

our flag run into a


purple heart

for Rachel Corrie.  She did


not join the army

for economic


reasons but went, instead

to a village


of greenhouses.

The bulldozer turned her


into compost, I suppose

for what could


be planted after

the eradication


of flowers, vegetables,

homegrown, hand-



necessities.  She knew how to be-


come indispensable.

A hard rain falls.
