A sanction gone awry
was my portion to cultivate

Giveth and taketh away

This is how adaptation occurs
A perpetual recycling

A sanction gone awry
was my portion to cultivate

Giveth and taketh away

This is how adaptation occurs
A perpetual recycling

Make-do-and-mend
again and again

   *

When this limbo
becomes mobile
and remains so

depends upon my knowing
the desert

with utmost rigor
and eloquent discipline

It is the road to ardor
wrought through uncertainty

   *

How the world is told
is how it inscribes itself

on our clothes

How we become what
we hold of it

Congruent

   *

The longing-sector
of the heart
beholds

relentless scrutiny

Inquiry and collecting
serve vigilance’s conspiring

The shoot of yellow
under winter

Dear reader,

I hope you enjoyed the article you just read. It’s just one of the many deeply reported and boundary-pushing stories we publish every day at The Nation. In a time of continued erosion of our fundamental rights and urgent global struggles for peace, independent journalism is now more vital than ever.

As a Nation reader, you are likely an engaged progressive who is passionate about bold ideas. I know I can count on you to help sustain our mission-driven journalism.

This month, we’re kicking off an ambitious Summer Fundraising Campaign with the goal of raising $15,000. With your support, we can continue to produce the hard-hitting journalism you rely on to cut through the noise of conservative, corporate media. Please, donate today.

A better world is out there—and we need your support to reach it.

Onwards,

Katrina vanden Heuvel
Editorial Director and Publisher, The Nation
