this acceptance poem/ speech is beautifully crafted and intimately related to why i write. i write because so many could not, can not and will not. the teacher’s question was too much for me, “…do you really have time to sit there? have you read every book in the library?”

no, this is no time to sit here, there or anywhere.  we all must stand and write and read and do.

Congratulations to Nikky Finney now and always!
