I attempted to go to the Contemporary Art Museum of St Louis, but they were closed since they were getting ready for a new installation. I know they do not allow photography in their galleries, but I wanted to go into their courtyard to photograph the space. Since I was unable to get into their courtyard, I wandered around the exterior of the building and came across this image.

National Library Shutters - Paris - France

National Library Shutters - Paris - France

This image shows the wooden shutters used to keep the heat and light out of the book stores of Francois Mitterand's Bibliotheque Nationale de France (designed by Dominique Perrault and completed in 1995). I'm not quite sure about the logic of keeping the books in glass buildings above the ground, with the reading rooms down below though...

Open Shutters: Poems

Mary Jo Salter’s sparkling new collection, Open Shutters, leads us into a world where things are often not what they seem. In the first poem, “Trompe l’Oeil,” the shadow-casting shutters on Genoese houses are made of paint only, an “open lie.” And yet “Who needs to be correct / more often than once a day? / Who needs real shadow more than play?”

Open Shutters also calls to mind the lens of a camera—in the villanelle “School Pictures” or in the stirring sequence “In the Guesthouse,” which, inspired by photographs of a family across three generations, offers at once a social history of America and a love story.

Darkness and light interact throughout the book—in poems about September 11; about a dog named Shadow; about a blind centenarian who still pretends to read the paper; about a woman shaken by the death of her therapist. A section of light verse highlights the wit and grace that have long distinguished Salter’s most serious work.

Fittingly, the volume fools the eye once more by closing with “An Open Book,” in which a Muslim family praying at a funeral seek consolation in the pages formed by their upturned palms.

Open Shutters is the achievement of a remarkable poet, whose concerns and stylistic range continue to grow, encompassing ever larger themes, becoming ever more open.
