                                I found William Carlos Williams
                                on an open stall in Beresford Square

                                early-morning Saturday sky grey
                                lemon-smear looking for titles

                                that dully glinted new things
                                to know of all possible new ideas

                                that are 17 years old the Penguin
                                caught my eye and his name I also

                                picked up Metropolitan Anthony (never
                                read it) and Thich Nhat Hanh which

                                I did read but didn’t get but William
                                Carlos Williams I got

                                by simply possessing the book right
                                there and then; I wish I still had it


William Carlos Williams: a critical anthology
Metropolitan Anthony, (it might have been) ‘God and Man
Thich Nhat Hanh, ‘Lotus in a Sea of Fire
