Poem by William Carlos Williams (1883-1963)




Between Walls

 

the back wings
of the

 

hospital where
nothing

 

will grow lie
cinders

 

in which shine
the broken

 

pieces of a green
bottle

To me, there have been very, very few excellent poets. Williams was one of them.

There's something really holy (and I do intend the word) about ol' Doc Williams' dedication to exactitude.
