Kyle Dargan is a 2010 DCCAH Literary Artist Fellow and the founding editor of Post No Ills magazine. You might recognize Dargan from our November ArtNews, Imprints, where he composed a poetic response to E. Ethelbert Miller’s Divine Love:
LETTERS & STONE
I would have loved you like that.
“We fought against the invisible“
~ E. Ethelbert Miller
Like the Supreme
Court and Capitol love
the Hill’s evening silence,
how the non-seers love
our unobstructed noonday sun—D.C.,
I would have loved you like that
