RIP: Lucille Clifton

Like many of you, I woke up to the sad news of Lucille Clifton’s passing.  I have so many of her poems running through my head — especially the ones that celebrate a woman’s body — but I think I will simply link to The Academy of American Poets website and her poem, “blessing the boats.”
