yezierska is a girl
who died long ago.
and when you look for her
you get results like breadgivers
and "america and i".
but you never get "island of hope, Island of tears"
never ellis island pictures
never clothing and poor jews, huddled and scared
coming to america

which i have to research
and the internet has no answer to give me
so i trot off, my head full of search returns
that gave me nothing.
