This summer I was lucky enough to take a class under the tutelage of Cheryl Clarke through the Roxbury Arts Group. We studied the works of Lucille Clifton. Clifton's typical work was short and lacked traditional capitalization and punctuation, but the feelings she portrayed in her poetry were everything candidly human in all of us. He pain, her suffering (and that of her family), her love, and her hopes for herself, her children, and the world were apparent in every poem she wrote. As part of the class, attendees were offered the chance to publish a Clifton-esque piece of their own. "Guilt" was my contribution and was published in a short collection called born in a bed of good lessons, Edited by Cheryl Clarke.
