Walk On, Walk Away

About This Poem

 

“‘Walk On, Walk Away’ is intended to celebrate the spirit of American laborers. The poem is from my newest manuscript, ‘A Righteous Union of Things,’ a collection of poems exploring my own life as a veteran of fifteen years (1970-85), as a semi-skilled factory worker in my native Baltimore, and, by extension, an exploration and celebration of America’s working class culture.”
—Afaa Michael Weaver
