"night air"

the holocaust inside me
and at my periphery
reminds of the world
and all of history,
like the sting of bees
in flight buzzing
their demise
and extinction.

now that i'm old,
am i bold enough
to find and face the point?
why it's all out of joint,
like movie stills
shuffled to hide the plot
and prize.

nothing is wrong,
nothing is right.
and i'm tantalized
in the distinction.

i've forgotten whether
nana closed the windows
or opened them
to the tonic and turmoil 
of night air.
shall i stand or not?

Appalachia has come a long way in the past four decades: its poverty rate, 33 percent in 1965, was 18 percent in 2008. The number of high-poverty counties in the Region (those with poverty rates more than 1.5 times the U.S. average) declined from 295 in 1965 to 116 in 2000.

"But despite progress, Appalachia still does not enjoy the same economic vitality as the rest of the nation. Central Appalachia in particular still battles economic distress, with concentrated areas of high poverty, unemployment, poor health, and severe educational disparities. And recent economic data show that the Region has fared far worse in the current recession than the rest of the nation." -- ARC
