A Poem to the Nationalist Marcher
Ezra Green is a poet and a queer poet and thread poet and an expatriate poet born in New York and a nobody poet. Ezra Green has become a skeleton to identify with his dead heroes and has become a rock to gather the warmth of the light of the living. Ezra Green is a folded faith that tries to unfold into this world and wants that unfolding to be for you. Ezra Green’s books include Book of Threads, Chinatown Rooftop Poems, 57 Masks to Wear in the Other World, and 13 Warsaw Poems (all published by Kopierladen Press). If Ezra Green were a person, he would have been living in Berlin since 2005.
