Jim Erkiletian: for love of america PEACE canada

Can we send you a CD of songpoems of peace?
Suitable for air play, but hard to get on radio because...

Peace doesn't sell cars, or cops or
cosmetics or even hockey or
football regardless the
winners maybe started on the
fields of competitive play
as did the loosers
on both sides...
And the dead don't ask
embareassing questions...

[editor's note: spelling is deliberate]

for a copy of the CD,
This poem has appeared in the website Poets Against War a French-English bilingual website. Jim Erkilezian's poetry has appeared in Crossing Lines: Poets Who Came to Canada in the Vietnam War Era, Edited by Allan Briesmaster and Steven Michael Berzensky and published by Seraphim Editions.

Poètes contre la guerre (Canada) cherche à engager poètes et lecteur(e)s de toute sorte, à bâtir une voix unie contre la guerre, la tyrannie et l'oppression.
