    Which Baby To Save

    Hold your breath: a song of climate change

    Bob Hicok poem selected and introduced by Pulitzer Prize winner Rita Dove, August 23, 2018 (NY Times)

    “…[T]he excuses for inaction in Bob Hicok’s parable of environmental greed rapidly rise to a rousing chorus of denial. W.H.

    who cuts down a tree,

    paint our Jesuses

    green, we’ll grow wings, we’ll go

    to the moon. Soon.
