Quotes [after looking over her poem]
Auster: Okay... you tell me.
Meg: I don't know.
Auster: Why not? Are you afraid I'm going to tell you your work stinks?
Meg: Does it?
Auster: What do you think?
Meg: Probably. I don't know.
Auster: Come back when you do.
[rises, starts to leave]
Meg: It doesn't stink. There's a line that I like.
Auster: Which one?
Meg: "Lost leaves spin past the glass, but the trees don't go. They stay by my window."
Auster: What about the rest of it?
Meg: I could go deeper.
Auster: Good for you.
