Don't be fooled by the grim-faced picture. It was the only unblinking one. For me, words are worth a thousand pictures. I'm looking forward to saying hi to all of you.

What Louise Clifton, the late American poet, said about writing

These are highlights from a 1990 interview with her in the literary magazine, Passager.
How do I write? Something catches my attention and I accept it gratefully.
I put it down and l try to help it become what it wishes to become. I might have an idea, but it has another. I follow the poem.
