Inspiration

— Leslie Hoffman

William Henley’s Invictus
Out of the night…
A baby’s squeal
The Dalai Lama’s laughter
Pablo Neruda
Martin Espada’s Chilé
Cesar Chavez
Steinbeck’s migrants
Kerouac’s road trip
Hemingway’s sea
A whale’s song
Dr. King’s dream
Richard Rodrigues’ essays
Maya’s Still I Rise

Language
not action—
prelusive to engagement.
