The world begins at a kitchen table... It is here that children are given instructions on what it means to be human. We make men at it, we make women... Perhaps the world will end at the kitchen table, while we are laughing and crying, eating of the last sweet bite.

-Joy Harjo, from "Perhaps the World Ends Here," in Sweeping Beauty: Contemporary Women Poets Do Housework
