Some Last Questions by W. S. Merwin

Poet: | Nationality: | Filmmaker:

Another section from the production Men Think They Are Better Than Grass by the San Francisco-based Deborah Slater Dance Theatre, based on poems by W. S. Merwin. The two featured dancers here are Travis Rowland and Breton Tyner Bryan. The inclusion of sound effects from the TV quiz show Jeopardy is brilliant, I thought.

Last Thursday, Merwin was appointed U.S. Poet Laureate.
