My Weekend Crush

Yes, everyone is talking about National Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman’s inaugural poem, “The Hill We Climb.” The 22-year-old poetry phenom is getting a lot of praise, and rightfully so. Her words were so clear, so powerful, so right. I’ve listed in full three times now, and I think it captures this perilous moment, and feather-light and feather-fragile hope we feel. The determination to do better. But, you don’t need to hear my words. Just listen to hers. Happy first weekend in Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’s America, all.
