breakfast with an old college crush. show her the drawing she drew in my black sketchbook.
there is so much to clean out with my old life and new with nina. there are my past life and there is the new life.

her name is rosie
although she goes by roe too
so i'm reminded of a carver poem about
milk and roe
he has a way with salmon
if he were a chef instead of a poet
i could dine in his restaurants
and the salmon would be in my belly
instead of in my heart
the milk and roe spawning infinitum

"Merwin has always been a contemplative poet, drawn to the lessons of the natural world and the rigors of unmediated vision. He has also been a romantic poet, heroic in his quest for the depths and intensities, the powers and possibilities of consciousness. Best of all, he has been a surprising poet, continually slipping the bonds of anyone's easy admiration."—J.D.McClatchy, The New Yorker

For more than five decades, W.S. Merwin has been an illuminating fixture in the worlds of poetry and translation. His first book, A Mask for Janus (1952), was selected the winner of the Yale Series of Younger Poets. In 1971, he won the Pulitzer Prize for The Carrier of Ladders. In the fall of 2004, Merwin was awarded the prestigious Lannan Lifetime Achievement Award in Poetry.
