He lived for the next 15 years between Venice and Rapallo, those two towns in Italy. This poem takes place in Venice in 1968, when I was living there for a year and I used to follow the poet around from time to time when I would see him on the street. The opening stanza is a description of how one would go from the house where I was living to the house where Pound lived on Dorsoduro in Venice."
