Commemorating the poet and activist in her own words, as quoted in various remembrances and obituaries.

The only exception is the final poem, which I chose myself.

14 grown-ups (so-called) and all their accompanying kids & pets, horns & typewriters, and at least one rifle.

my vow is:
to remind us all
to celebrate
there…
