About this author

James Brush lives in Austin, Texas. He teaches English in a juvenile correctional facility, and was once a James Michener Fellow at the Texas Center for Writers. He published his first poetry collection, Birds Nobody Loves: A Book of Vultures & Grackles in 2012.

found poem from Goodheart, Adam. “Lincoln.”National GeographicApril (2015): 50. Print.
