About This Poem

 

“The Milosz poem I can’t find reminded me of having over-shared at a party to a fellow scholar, a severely mean and brilliant much older woman by whom I’d long been fascinated. I enjoyed her complete attention that night, but later had remorse, until we lost her. Now a chance memory of the true crime tale I told still brings a flicker of shame, but it is snuffed out like a candle when I recall where she is now. The poem links its many losses with my dear and departed arch scholar, and admits to benefits. Without a poem that said these things, I wrote one, and feel much better—another benefit of loss. Still, if anyone knows the Milosz poem in question, please contact me through my website.”
—Jennifer Michael Hecht
