the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting --
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.

user picture evan: aw man. what did you think of Giovanni's Room? mar 11 2017
user picture vagabond: Loved it, even though it was heartbreaking. James Baldwin writes so beautifully.
user picture evan: You're so right. Baldwin is probably one of my favorite writers. He does nonfiction just as well and his analyses are always so well done!!!
