The Flavor of Unity: Post-Election Poems



By Kim Stafford

Following the election of 2016 Stafford began writing poems to carefully think about and examine the deep divisions in the national consciousness. He considers how to move ahead on a path of healing, how to return to the ideals of integrity that Stafford saw as bedrock for this country.

As Stafford wrote in the preface: “In this little book , I gather these considerations, poems, and blessings I have composed since the election as I seek to understand the work we have to do if we are to be one people living by kindness together again.”
