Poem Crush: WC Williams, Poem

Poem Crush: "Poem" William Carlos Williams

As the cat
climbed over
the top of

the jamcloset
first the right

then the hind
stepped down

into the pit of
the empty

- William Carlos Williams

Physician and poet probably best known for his poem, The Red Wheelbarrow, Williams was strongly influenced in his poetry by the concept of Imagism as originally put forth by T.E. Hulme in the Imagist Manifesto, 1912.
