Zoom Poetry Reading for Book Beat Bookstore

“A Little Girl Alongside a Road” is a poem about an experience that I had in China in 1994 (correct date), near Dunhuang, Gansu, relatively close to Xinziang, where perhaps as many as 1.8 million Muslim Uighurs have now been thrown into concentration camps by China and subjected to horrifying abuse and slave labor. We human beings on this planet must honor and protect their dignity and humanity.

Special thanks to ML Lieblier, Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan, for hosting and inviting me to participate in his recent poetry reading benefit on Zoom for Book Beat bookshop on Sunday, December 6, 2020. Book Beat, Oak Park, Michigan, has a couple of my books available The Parliament of Poets and The Myth of the Enlightenment.
