Lorde knows

so when i was still reading ms. lorde’s excellent biography, i came across this sentence below, hooted with laughter out loud, then felt a  slight discomfort settle in the pit of my stomach afterwards—i’m not exactly sure why. . .

on March 18th 1978, in an unpublished journal, Audre Lorde noticed after touching down in Trini—her only comment on that instance in Trinidad—that: “The Grenadians and the Barbadians walk like an African people. The Trinidadians do not.”

muy interesante.

i swear, only a poet could make an observation like that yes. & it’s stuff like that that makes the interior of a writer’s cranium so fascinating.
