Democracy in Silhouette: Poems, a recently released book of poetry that examines the roles that everyday people, those in power, and corporations play in the struggle to protect democracy from autocracy, corpocracy, and complacency. This succinct collection of poems explores current events, history, tradition, progress, and beliefs while seeking solutions grounded in love and connection.
Author T.L Cooper writes, “Oh, Democracy, What Say You? Proclamations of freedom and equality echo through hollow speeches ignoring far too many of we, the people. What happens when the people see the manipulation that keeps the powerful in power and those without power powerless? When a democracy becomes cast in silhouette, can it thrive? Can a democracy in silhouette even survive?”
