A Winning Geo-Poem on Faulting

By May 2, 2013

Follow me on:

The Zócalo Public Square website does all sorts of cultural things, among which is an annual contest for the poem that "best explores people's connection to place." Today they published the winning poem "Fault," by Southern Californian Jia-Riu Chong Cook, which takes as a theme the San Andreas fault. In "Fault," plate tectonics is a nimble metaphor for the precarious state of human relationships. I approve this message.
