Meaning (March)

[Imprint]  Robert Creeley was an American poet. This is not so important in the general scheme of things. Every day I catalogue books that people really need. Sometimes a borrower holds a book in their hands, saying they can hardly believe that we have this book. I sometimes wish he would say something that was really worth saying, Creeley I mean. He describes March, everyday events, how the parts of speech relate. In his effort to avoid universalising, he universalises. Other times there were probably days Creeley didn’t know what to make of anything at all. Time for ‘time out’.
