Unconsciously I had taken friendship’s measure 
from artists elsewhere who had been close to me,
people living for the minutest public dissection
of emotion and belief. But more warmth was,
and is, in Marshall’s quiet “hello” than in all 

those others and their wordiest protestations,
more warmth and far less vanity.

– from Marshall Washer by Hayden Carruth, via Ben Hewitt
