Hambone's Lament

Ink-jet printed pages in wire coil binding with white foil stamped title on cover. I wrote the original text in 1991 during the first Gulf War. Using the traditional African-American lyrics of Hambone Hambone as a starting point, the text expresses the anguish of a mother raising children in a culture that fetishes pregnancy and childhood and is willing to send its young adults into the horror of war.
