“…The mind flickers, / rewinds a silver screen where you saw a movie once, / Black Beauty or Black Stallion—it doesn’t matter, / though you want to get it right: the horse / would not be saved…”

“People talk about Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego like they were the only heroes, but they had God there inside the furnace with them and visible, didn’t they?  What about those outside, the witnesses, all those women and children and old men, who had to stand helpless while four men burned?”

Emily Bobo is the author of Fugue published by Lost Horse Press. Associate Professor of English at Ivy Tech Community College, she believes in the transformative power of writing to build community and to voice the individual. She treasures her students and their stories.
