Nothing Like My Favorite Neruda Passage To End The Night

Twenty Love Poems and a Song of Depair
-- XIV, Juegos Todos Las Dias

I will bring you happy flowers from the mountains,
dark hazels, and rustic baskets of kisses.
I want
to do with you what spring does with the cherry trees.

Translated by W.S. Merwin

Hey loca, I can't stop reading Aura. It is like reading Niebla (by Unamuno) and sort of having this character you create talk back to you but realizing it is yourself. Creepy. Ask Russ for my email - I can't seem to be able to email you.

Yup. The 2nd person is a booby-trap. He's telling you what to think.

My email is: Dmd2107@columbia.edu

I can't rely on Russ. He's a mess!
