Let Us Gather, My Fellow Inch Worms

When I need inspiration, guidance, or wisdom (which is always), I often look to the words of June Jordan.  (The photo of us above was taken in my San Francisco flat back in 2000.)

Today, I re-read my favorite book of her poetry, Kissing God Goodbye: Poems 1991-1997, and have decided to adopt this stanza from “Poem Because the 1996 U.S. Poet Laureate Told the San Francisco Chronicle There Are ‘Obvious’ Poets…” as my personal mantra whenever I find myself seething:


And burrowing under everything you think

you know

some of us move slow

like inch worms

softening the earth

to bury you


So hilarious, so ominous, so perfect.   I am burrowing like never before.

I miss you, June — my hero, mentor, and friend.
