The Music of Elizabeth Alexander

“Let gravity have its way with you.
Revolve around something luminous.”

from How to Sing Like a Planet

“It’s how I stand when I am feeling small,
How I stand again after a fall –
It’s how I’m even standing here at all:
Some people call it Grace.”

from Grace

“To know the story of a stranger –
That can be a mighty rearranger.
Let it be a downright game changer.”

from Let it Matter
