On February 19, 1949 Ezra Pound received the first Bollingen Prize for Poetry, not without controversy. The Bollingen Prize is a literary honor bestowed on an American poet in recognition of the best book of new verse within the last two years, or for lifetime achievement. It is awarded every two years by the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library of Yale University.
The 2021 Prize was awarded to Mei-mei Berssenbrugge.
I seek a permanent home, but this structure has an appearance of indifferent compoundedness and isolation, heading toward hopelessness.
The boy pulls an animal on a leash.

House is the projection, space around it intermediary, theater.
You don’t have to consume the space to exist, distance, point-to-point, in which a beloved ruin is middle ground, for example.Stanza 1 of Permanent Home by Mei-mei Berssenbrugge.
