Translators of Tomorrow -A Poem by Bill Marlin


In addition to his great contributions to the art world as an art professor for over 2 decades (the first full time art department faculty member) and an accomplished artist of his own right, William Marlin (my adopted father that raised me) was also a master poet. I present one of many that my adopted mother found and recently published.

Translators of Tomorrow

To wrap inconstancy in dimension

a continuum to itself

by holding a moment to the glare

as translators of tomorrow

 

All goes on

but in grasping some back

a touch

so compelling

we breathe both

the air of now and before

as in unison.

 

The renewal and the change

blend

in a new configuration

of what must be said

to be forgotten

and remembered.

 

Somewhere echoes speak

for some

they float – always waiting.
