Pixilated, on a clear day, a shovel may resemble
a rifle. A woman is always a civilian, by definition,
and data (416–957 civilians dead by drones
in Pakistan) will not be updated. The ability
to loiter for longer along the largely erased border
between Iraq and Syria will pursue American
interests. They named a drone Hermes, after Herma,
Greek for: prop, heap of stones, boundary marker.
Oh mighty messenger of the gods (—Aeschylus),
bringer of good luck, guide and guardian (—Homer),
thief at the gates, watcher by night (—anon),
give us the full leaked report without seeking
permission for entry. Hermes, you who protect
trade and travelers, god of transition, and poets.
Help fund the next generation of Black journalists, editors, and publishers.
Boston Review’s Black Voices in the Public Sphere Fellowship is designed to address the profound lack of diversity in the media by providing aspiring Black media professionals with training, mentorship, networking opportunities, and career development workshops. The program is being funded with the generous support of Derek Schrier, chair of Boston Review’s board of advisors, the Ford Foundation, and the Carnegie Corporation of New York, but we still have $50,000 left to raise to fully fund the fellowship for the next two years. To help reach that goal, if you make a tax-deductible donation to our fellowship fund through August 31 it will be matched 1:1, up to $25,000—so please act now to double your impact.
