Tom Cotton: Send in the Troops             

the country burns… is an erasure poem based on the New York Times column by Senator Tom Cotton which urged the use of military force against Black Lives Matter protests.  There has been some blood on the walls over the Times decision to solicit the column from Senator Cotton with the editor who published and defended the publication forced to resign.   You can read the original text through the photographic overlay.  Published today in honor of the coming national holiday, Juneteenth.
