and again the Lorde sayeth unto us....

“Even the form our creativity takes is often a class issue. Of all the art forms, poetry is the most economical. It is the one which is the most secret, which requires the least physical labor, the least material, and the one which can be done between shifts, in the hospital pantry, on the subway, and on scraps of surplus paper.”

Audre Lorde, "Age, Race, Class and Sex" (1980) in Sister Outsider
