How lucky America is
to speak English—
a language with no gender—

otherwise we couldn’t
use the word 'marriage'
to describe the union
of two same-gendered words

like God and government.

Carolyn Moretti received her B.A. in English from Hofstra University in December 2009. She has recently completed her first poetry chapbook and looks forward to working on her second. Carolyn was published in Newsday's 'Fresh Voices' section in July 2001 and won the Nassau County Young Authors Competition in 2004.
