Today is Dr. William Carlos Williams’ birthday. An American master of poetics who, even further than Whitman, brought the muse into the kitchen, “I was always intent on saying what I had to say in the accents that were native to me.” 

If you’re familiar with his haiku-like images “The Red Wheel Barrow” or vernacular of “This Is Just To Say,” take a look at some nearly surrealistic mind jumps in his book “Spring And All.”

So much depends upon his direct language & concrete image, holding hands to us kiddies who look bright & wideeyed, then on occasion see what he saw. I celebrate you, Thank you, & Happy Birthday Today is Dr. William Carlos Williams’ birthday.

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

coming from the neighbor’s dormroom
with sex muff’ld in blanket.
