Missing

I split the horizon of my body to get to the center— / a sparkly soft bellied fish, small enough / to swim in the color of your eye. 

Robin Myers' The Guest

The Guest #14

By

In The Guest, poet and literary translator Robin Myers explores poetry translation as process, practice, vocation, meditation, and craft. Drawing both on her own projects-in-progress and the work of other translators, The Guest is a kind of diary, a thinking-out-loud about the pleasures, challenges, and decisions required—and invited—by bringing poems into another language. To do them justice and to make them new.

“I have opinions / about the instrument of violence / holding my body open, its history / too brutal for metaphor, but I keep them / to myself.”
