Carvens Lissaint - "Haiti"

Carvens Lissaint is a Haitian-American poet and performer from New York City. His poem "Haiti" was written a year ago and has a startling prophetic tone in the wake of the recent tragic events there. Carvens' mother was in Haiti at the time of the earthquake, and fortunately is safe and back home with her family. As Haiti struggles to rebuild after the natural disaster, and the U.S. and UN continue to focus more on "security" than relief, Carvens reminds us that the best people to lead the reconstruction of a community are the members of that community themselves.
