Pinkie Gordon Lane
“[On her mother:] I carry her with me now like a loose sweater that sucks out the chill on a snowy winter night.”
“Rite of passage we / each have as a legacy / of growing up and daring / to challenge the terrible / beauty of our own alienation / our own walk in space / our own weightlessness / in a world of spiraling / centrifugal force — a race / to the unknown — / a rite of passage.”
Pinkie Gordon Lane, U.S. poet, editor, educator
