Rosenberg writes: "Nobody likes to admit they're an orphan, but we still are orphans to this day. My first psalms were a kind of mourning for this loss. I thought of the term 'lord' as the dead poet-father internalized as a poetic muse. I came to realize that the erased biblical poets were orphans too." (The Angel Hair Anthology, p. 596) Near fine, clean, sharp copy.
