Joyce Carol Thomas
“Zelma gospel-skipped so quick in her deep-blue robe whirling with every step she took, somebody had to unwrap the guitar from around her neck. She was a jubilee all by herself.”
“She has the gaze / Of the gods / In her voice / Her song is / The wind / Set free.”
“I am all that I am / And some of what I hope to be.”
“The worst thing: to give yourself away in exchange for not enough love.”
Joyce Carol Thomas, U.S. writer, poet, playwright, speaker
