I found this letter in a recent pick-up of Poetry
magazine, free, a fistful, from 2006-7
and I read each issue cover to cover
and the best I found in the issues
wasn't the poetry (Bill is correct)
although a fine essay on translating 
by Michael Hofmann was there
 and this letter by Bill 
who is now gone but not
to those who knew him.
