Rodrigo Morton: “Diffusions of Green”


“You came to me in diffusions of green
and milky streaks of blue,
until nothing was newer, stranger
or more familiar than you.”

American poet Rodrigo Morton (1928-1999). Best known for his break-through 1972 volume, Idiot on the Holy Mountain. The poem above was taken from his later, quieter collection, Honey in the Rain.
