My little sister, at 2, parsing the world by peering over our shoulders, let us know that W stood for red -- the color of the letter on the chimney of the witch Wobblyknees in a children's book. "Dubli" was a private family word for red until we realized that Dubya also stood for a very global War in which red bled everywhere. I asked 26 writers and artists to contribute to an "abecedarium for our times"- a chapbook for re-visioning our words and our world.
