Anne Lomott quote

Anne Lamott tells of visiting San Quentin prison:
"Finally, we stood outside an inner gate,
showed our IDs to the guards,
and got our hands stamped with fluorescent ink.
"You don't glow, you don't go."
said one cheerful, pockmarked guard,
which was the best spiritual advice
I'd had in a long time.
