4th of July

In honor of it being the 4th of July - America's independence day - here is a poem about America by Tony Hoagland that is funny yet also savagely poignant. "America" can be found in Hoagland's 2003 collection titled What Narcissism Mean to Me. I picked the book up randomly a couple of days ago and bought it just because I read this poem in the store and was floored instantly.

Read Tony Hoagland's "America".
