Seascape with Waves (+ my favorite poet)


Click to view auction

Today is the anniversary of American poet Robert Lax's death (read a bit here). Bob Lax was a contemporary of my namesake (Trappist monk Thomas Merton); Merton and Lax were also friends with the painter Ad Reinhardt. During the latter years of his life, Lax lived on the island of Patmos, Greece. Here's one of his works:

"are you a visitor?" asked 
the dog.

"yes," i answered.

"only a visitor?" asked 
the dog. 

"yes," i answered. 

"take me with you," said 
the dog.
