“I think the rawness of my mother’s gesture helped me trust the rawness of the poem to be sufficient, even as it took risks. Writing “Hope” also helped me to articulate something I’d been sensing for a long time, and that is a distinction between two kinds of pain: the one kind is the pain of the mother and daughters, a dull, daily pain that never ebbs or changes, a pain that weaves itself into the fabric of every hour.”
