"Why We Don't Have Children" Released as Part of the Rattle Poets Respond Series

Many thanks to Rattle, which released my poem "Why We Don't Have Children" today as a bonus Poets Respond poem. The poem was written as a reaction to the news that the grand jury in Cleveland decided not to indict the police officer who shot and killed twelve-year-old Tamir Rice.

I really enjoyed reading and listening to your poem today on Rattle's post. The title informs each line, and the last two lines are stunning. Nicely done.
