ABOUT TO START GRADING MY COMMERCIAL LAW EXAMS
Mark Strand, Blizzard of One: Poems (New York: Knopf, 1998, 2000) (From "I Will Love the Twenty-First Century": ". . . Then a man turned / And said to me: 'Although I love the past, the dark of it, / The weight of it teaching us nothing, the loss of it, the all / Of it asking for nothing, I will love the twenty-first century more, / For in it I see someone in bathrobe and slippers, brown-eyed and poor, / Walking through snow without leaving so much as a footprint behind.' / 'Oh,' I said, putting my hat on, 'Oh.' " Id. at 6.).
