article on Lontar Foundation — Michael J. Ybarra, “Found in Translation: An American labors to promote Indonesia’s largely unknown literature.” *
...in fact it rarely is, today it’s just a faded old scrap of paper with blotches and stains on it that falls out of a book, or it’s a thoroughly ruined ﬂattened pencil I ﬁnd lying on the street, or a piece of polyester stuffing that I ﬁnd lying in the grass like a miniature cloud that has fallen to the earth without evaporating. I recognize these, all of these, as visual accompaniments to my poems.
