Katherine Abrams is a poet, educator, mother, and feminist who desperately wishes to open the eyes of those who just don’t see what’s happening.

Inspiration: This poem is inspired by the unnerving events since the swearing in of the Trump administration, and the way the news media has been belittled and devalued by that administration. The use of New York Times headlines reframes important the work journalists do while reflecting on the terms being censored at the CDC as public terms, used in public forums, to describe public events and increase public understanding.
