The Trials of Edgar Poe and Other Poems
Ned Balbo reads from his poem Hart Island in celebration for receiving the Poet's Prize in 2012
Hart Island - by Daniel Tally
God is the potter and we are the clay. We're counting the bodies we buried today, The homeless, the nameless. How do we pray For those, in whose lifetimes, we just turned away? God is the potter and we are the clay.
