“All art-making is about failure. “

 “All art-making is about failure. We never get it right. But poems are not poems if they make people feel dead. I want people to feel alive – even if it is alive with grief. I want people to feel their blood moving by the time I’m done.” 

-Danez Smith, quoted in
