Brian Beatty On William Carlos Williams

Borrowed Trouble: Micro Tribute to William Carlos Williams (1883-1963)

I wouldn’t write at all if it weren’t for myriad writers before me whose works showed me what was possible. The poems of this series are small offerings of respect, of thanks, to those muses. – Brian Beatty

William Carlos Williams

There were no white chickens the night 
I followed my muse out into that lightning storm.

And the wheelbarrow hunched in prayer against the side 
of the house was red due to rust.

– Brian Beatty

  1. Imagist poetry broke open writing for me. WCW, specifically, had a lightness of touch I aspire to.
