Wilfredo Monserrat

Wilfredo MonserratFor long years, I was all that stood
in between the Spoon River Public
Library and the Puritans
who wanted to eject the books they
thought were “offensive” or “obscene”
or “inappropriate” for children.
As if keeping their children from
reading or hearing about the dark
isn’t precisely the thing that
makes them run headlong towards it. I am
gone now. Nobody is left to
stop you. So have your purge. If you would
bother to read some of those books,
you’d find out what you’re going to reap.
