X [American Burden] X

Been pondering today's inauguration for a long time (as we all have).

I went looking for solace in the Hymns, Anthems, and Songs of America.

After sampling them, deconstructing them, listening to refrains repetitively, stretching them to the brink, and collaging them back together I found some silent principles in the tiniest pieces of America's balladry.

I wrote this piece as an American portrait and to remind myself to use my little voice in this democracy. 

Thought I'd share this piece to provide space to reflect within and to provide a different option for your ears on this inauguration day.
