To Calvin White, "political" means taking a stand on issues that matter, wading into the nitty-gritty of who we are as humans and the lives we live and are sometimes forced to live. Poetojournalism is commentary and exposure: words create the imagery; poems create the photo; the photo tells the story. Our wars, our crimes, our relationships to others, the chronicling of our deeper selves--this is the world The Bodies explores.
