Joan Didion RIP

She gave me eyes

to see between the lines,

 

the river’s current

intensions,

 

surface politicized,

scandalized—

 

melody of words

for the truth in my mind.

  5. So Joan Didion passed away. I read one of her books: THE WHITE ALBUM many years ago. I remember reading the essay where she describes her migraine headaches. She was a very good writer.

  6. I love, “she gave me eyes to read between the lines.” When I learned she died, I told my best friend, “She taught us how to think about the things we thought were obvious.”
