Rise Up Review 32

About

Rise Up Review is a landing site for the poetry of opposition. The poems on Rise Up are meant to be disseminated like little manifestos. In that regard, each poem is featured as a JPEG, which makes for easy sharing. William Carlos Williams says that "it is difficult to get the news from poems, yet men [and women] die miserably everyday for lack of what is found there." Poetry has the ability to address injustices and oppression in a manner that is both lyrical and intimate. The best such instances of this power avoid the didactic, because we learn about human evils and frailties, human love and strength, from the stories we tell. Poetry is a hammer is a flame is a rebel flag is an olive branch. We proffer it to you. Because Resistance is Fertile
