Zitat des Tages von Carolyn Kizer:
Environmental concerns and feminism are locked together. Generally, women have closer connections to the organic nature of our lives.
I wrote poetry off and on in high school, when I could manage to get out of gym classes and sports - using my allergies as an excuse - and climb the hill behind school till I found a nice place to settle down with a notebook and look at Spokane spread out below.
I tell people I never got to hear Dylan Thomas read because my husband wouldn't let me, because he thought it would be a sort of bad influence. People say, 'And you didn't go?' They're so surprised because the me they know would have gone. And I say I was very much a 'yes, dear' wife.
No matter how brief an encounter you have with anybody, you both change.
I've been enormously fortunate. People say, 'How do you feel about your reputation?' My real belief is that I have exactly the reputation I deserve... on the whole, I feel comfortable with myself.
As I remember, the first real poem I wrote was about the wheat fields between Spokane and Pullman, to the south.
