Danez Smith
“some of us are killed in pieces, some of us all at once // do i think someone created AIDS? maybe. i don’t doubt that anything is possible in a place where you can burn a body with less outrage than a flag”
Danez Smith, Don't Call Us Dead: Poems

Raymond Antrobus
“Can we disagree graciously
I am tired of people

not knowing the volume
of their power.”
Raymond Antrobus

Han Kang
“After you died I could not hold a funeral,
And so my life became a funeral.”
Han Kang, Human Acts

James Baldwin
“Some moments in a life, and they needn’t be very long or seem very important, can make up for so much in that life; can redeem, justify, that pain, that bewilderment, with which one lives, and invest one with the courage not only to endure it, but to profit from it; some moments teach one the price of the human connection: if one can live with one’s own pain, then one respects the pain of others, and so, briefly, but transcendentally, we can release each other from pain.”
James Baldwin, Tell Me How Long the Train's Been Gone

Jericho Brown
“There is the happiness you have
And the happiness you deserve.”
Jericho Brown, The Tradition
