The press release in my last post quotes Palestinian-American Poet Suheir Hammad, who went to New Orleans as a visiting volunteer. Hammad also has written a moving poem about NOLA, called "a prayer band," which Elisa has posted at Two Feet In.

Folks I've got them hungry blues
And nothin' in this to lose
People tellin' me to choose
Between dyin' and lyin' and keep
Tired of them hungry blues
Listen ain't you heard the news
There's another thing to choose
A brand new world clean and fine
Where nobody's hungry
And there's no color line
A thing like that's worth
I ain't got a thing to lose
But them doggone hungry blues
