Saying who we are


I thought I'd add a poem about saying who we to this crazy wisdom. Saying who we are seems like an important part of literacy work to me. Sometimes we discover who we are by saying it. But, of course, we have to keep saying it, and saying it differently, learning by saying.

Saying who we are

We’ve built
shelves for

for need,

tried to stop
wanting more
than we have.

but we still
want, need,

We can
die, become
the coolness
that clings
to the earth
at night,

or say
who we are.
