    in a narrow way, a la Stephen Pinker.

    Poverty is violence and poverty in America is increasing. Education is crumbling and that is a violence. and on and on goes the list. That these violences are not the result of aggressions on physical flesh does not make them less violent.

    There are moments when the body is as numinous as words, days that are the good flesh continuing. -- Robert Hass
