Evening Street Press is centered on Elizabeth Cady Stanton's 1848 revision of the Declaration of Independence: "that all men -- and women -- are created equal," with equal rights to "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." It focuses on the realities of experience, personal and historical, from the most gritty to the most dreamlike, including awareness of the personal and social forces that block or develop the possibilities of a new culture.

 Oh say, did you know

that katharine lee bates wrote america the beautiful
while on a cross country train trip in 1893

but here I am in my seventh decade and never heard of katharine lee bates

Good Work

Good work, I thought today, is the muse,
the fount of creation, the spark that lights
the wick that lights the way to writing a poem.
I was raking stones with a shovel along the driveway
to gather them in piles and shovel them up to place
in the wheelbarrow to dump in the potholes winter
and the spring thaw had conspired to create.
There was such a profusion the eight-hundred feet
from town road to garage had to be driven
