McNally's Book Launch of Butterflies of the North Woods by Ron Romanowski, Friday May 5, 2017.
Where I write poetry Donald Trump would build a golf course. -Ron Romanowski
Socially responsible poetry versus Trump's creepy trolling. Lepidopterist versus racist thug. Naked poetics versus the fuzzy Emperor of Orange. Sylvan versifier contra fissionable Commander-in-Chief. Or, something like David against Goliath, and we all know how that turned out...
Butterflies of the North Woods
is the book launch of veteran labour writer Ron Romanowski's seventh collection of poetry.
