  1. I recently got into a long discussion about the assassination of Franz Ferdinand. Killing the Archduke was largely a ceremonial act because, at the start of the 20th century, heads of state were already hell-bent on driving the entire European continent into war. Less than two decades later, history repeated itself, except of course, we had gotten much better at killing by then. I can’t help but feel like today’s leaders are trying to put us back on another collision course.
    I think poets have a responsibility to speak out against this kind of recklessness. Certainly, this poem does a wonderful job of speaking to that cause.
