Lucille Clifton, In memory

Lucille Clifton, poet

come celebrate

with me that everyday

something has tried to

kill me

and has failed

– Lucille Clifton, “won’t you celebrate with me”

Recently I wrote that quote from Clifton’s poem “won’t you celebrate with me,” down so that I could always keep that reminder nearby. Then today, I learned that Lucille Clifton passed away. This makes me sad.
