sometimes we share a poem because i’m washing the dishes and you’re looking at your news
or sometimes we make a poem because it’s Sunday and you want ice cream while i want cookies
but always we share a poem because belief predates action and i believe the most beautiful poem ever heard is your heart racing
— Nikki Giovanni, from “Poetry Is a Trestle,” in The Collected Poetry of Nikki Giovanni: 1968-1998
