Wild at the CDC Poetry Project

I’m stoked to be kicking off National Poetry Month at the CDC Poetry Project.

Each poem in the project uses all seven words banned by the Trump administration from all Centers for Disease Control communications: entitlement, diversity, vulnerable, fetus, transgender, evidence-based, science-based.

Trump sailed into the White House on a wave of loose talk that his supporters find exhilarating as if it’s bold or somehow fearless to be a blowhard. Yet his administration is so afraid of how these seven words might be used (I mean, “fetus” for God’s sake!) they’ve been banned from CDC documents. Pathetic.
