Charles Olson — American Poet born on December 27, 1910, died on January 10, 1970

Charles Olson was a second generation American poet who was a link between earlier figures such as Ezra Pound and William Carlos Williams and the New American poets, which includes the New York School, the Black Mountain School, the Beat poets, and the San Francisco Renaissance. Consequently, many postmodern groups, such as the poets of the language school, include Olson as a primary and precedent figure. He described himself not so much as a poet or writer but as "an archeologist of morning.".. (wikipedia)

Forgive me if I sleep until I wake up.
I am happy to have some friends here in the kitchen.
This morning of the small snow I count the blessings, the leak in the faucet which makes of the sink time, the drop of the water on water.
When will government cease being a nuisance to everybody?
The heroes of the present will retreat to the imitation they are anyhow.
