"Our broken empire, America, wasn't an empire for very long. But there isn't one part of its breaking that is not also replicated in each section of the culture. In cars, traffic, movies, buses, banks, schools, war, architecture, hospitals and labs, and in poetry." --Fanny Howe, The Winter Sun (2009)
