Guest Post by Kristina Zolatova: A Name for the Unnamed
Dr. Kristina Zolatova, featured for the first time here, is seeking suggestions for a title for her new poem (see below). Since I have encountered so many creative people through my blog, I encouraged Kristina to post her poem on my blog in order to see what ideas might be presented. With that said, enjoy the poem and let’s hear your poetic and aesthetically attuned ideas (commentary on the poem is also welcome.)
Cast aside, televised and captured as an image.
But we all know that one-size fits none.
When “echoes” talk back, they signify
Actively, aggressively to the double, triple, it’s not so simple.
Interpellation meets improvisation and continues to this day.
Isn’t this what we’re called to do?
Not a diminishment of black, white, brown, or yellow.
Rather a collage, a harmony of multiplicity
And in-our-hopes uniting
“on the one” as we process toward a
Rhythmic, uninterrupted you-and-me—
In a word,
