"America" by Walt Whitman
“Centre of equal daughters, equal sons, / All, all alike endear’d, grown, ungrown, young or old,”
"The Beautifully Worthless" by Ali Liebegott
“A thousand ways to be lost in this country -- / good lost, bad lost -- people pushed by broom edges, /flicked by bristle tips into corners....”
"Ghazal: America The Beautiful" by Alicia Ostriker
"I said One Nation Invisible until corrected / maybe I was right about America."
