The Passing of Adrienne Rich

As powerful and relevant as ever:

It doesn’t matter what you think.
Words are found responsible
all you can do is choose them
or choose
to remain silent. Or, you never had a choice,
which is why the words that do stand
are responsible
and this is verbal privilege

Adrienne Rich, “North American Time”
