Based on The Poems From Different Cultures Anthology. To be used with the Roots and Water video. Matt Posner: The poem is This Room by Imtiaz Dharker. I judge this to be a teachable poem although it isn't easy. I can't find the Roots and Water video. The handout is somewhat vestigial, but has some useful discussion questions, and leaving it up might cause someone to discover the poem, so I'll say pass.
