Judith Ortiz Cofer

What we want to know:in the unimaginable momentof the union of parental flesh,was there love, orare we the heirs of carelessness?This matters,That we were wanted; called forthto fulfill a wish.That we were meant to be. — Judith Ortiz Cofer, “Origen,” Terms of Survival. (Arte Publico Pr December 1987)
