While passing the time John writes with dreams of becoming a professional writer so he can provide for his wife and himself and bless others. John has had some nominal success being published by small publishers and being self-published. John’s poetry has appeared in over one hundred outlets. After a hiatus from trying to get his poetry published John is back at work sending out the emails again. This piece Mammy comes from a small unpublished poetry chapbook called “The Sounds Of Silence.” The group of poems talks about things that we normally don’t want to talk about. Front and center is the rape of the African slaves by their masters. While this is a subject most would like to ignore it is part of our American history. In this poem, John tries to reflect the thoughts of a woman who was raped and talking to the children of those encounters.
John’s work can be seen on his Amazon page. https://www.amazon.com/John-Kaniecki/e/B00NV8AU76
