Patricia Donegan

  • Tonight, / like many without a lover, / I'm going to bake bread / push my knuckles / into soft dough.

    • Patricia Donegan,
    • in The Stanford Daily ()
  • There are three habitual styles of approaching the world: through passion, through aggression, and through ignorance. That is, we pull things to us, push things away from us, or ignore things.

Patricia Donegan, U.S. poet, translator

(1945)
