How amazing to have had Louise Glück as a teacher-- I can't imagine! Also I lol'd at "Slayer of the Oceans". I'm so sad and so sorry Maebe (not sure if I'm spelling it right) won't be here to be under the cherry tree this year. Is there something you could put under the cherry tree in her honor?

this is one of my favorite things you've ever written. i was just saying to a friend last night that i never want my poetry to be hard or lock anyone out. i still feel that way, but in this moment i do have to wonder how much of that is truly me and how much of that is a programmed impulse to welcome, to tend, to accommodate. thank you (and thank you, louise), for reminding us about other ways.
