"A woman-of-color who writes poetry or paints or dances or makes movies knows there is no escape from race or gender when she is writing or painting. She can’t take off her color and sex and leave them at the door or her study or studio. Nor can she leave behind her history. Art is about identity, among other things, and her creativity is political."

— Gloria Anzaldúa, Making Face/Making Soul: Haciendo Caras — Creative and Cultural Perspectives by Women of Color  (via jalwhite)

haikuology:

(to the girl I am falling in love with)

you are the smudge on

my glasses that can never

seem to be wiped off.

the clumsy, warm breath 

of air that sits in my lungs;

you rest in me.

you are a lipstick

stain on my third eye, a

hickey on my heart

you are the beauty

mark i never hope fades, you

are my forever.

haikuology:

(type)

at six months shy of

my twenties i learned that dark

skinned girls who wear crowns

of dark jeweled curls and

stripes of yellow, black, and green

across their nude lips

who fall in love in

Februarys and kiss like

daytime thunderstorms

and enjoy making

pancakes to jazz…

"You write in order to change the world, knowing perfectly well that you probably can’t, but also knowing that literature is indispensable to the world. The world changes according to the way people see it, and if you alter, even by a millimeter, the way people look at reality, then you can change it." —James Baldwin

"Writing is really a way of thinking—not just feeling but thinking about things that are disparate, unresolved, mysterious, problematic or just sweet.” —Toni Morrison

"The purpose of any piece of writing is its existence before a reader’s eyes. A writer exists when she fills the blank page. A writer fulfills her task when she can be read by readers. The important thing is to write." —Nancy Morejón

"The ability to use language to effective ends, to have somebody read something and see it, or for somebody to paint an entire landscape of visual imagery with just sheets of words—that’s magical." — Yasiin Bey (Mos Def)

"By and large, the critics and readers gave me an affirmed sense of my identity as a writer. You might know this within yourself, but to have it affirmed by others is of utmost importance. Writing is, after all, a form of communication." —Ralph Ellison

"The idea is to write it so that people hear it and it slides through the brain and goes straight to the heart." —Maya Angelou
