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-

 

made

necessities.  She knew how to be-

 

come indispensable.

A hard rain falls.
