THE POET MUST BE WRITING

Ezra
           felt 
                   this
                   to be
true
         a        discipline
                   he
                    said
and
he
        would 
                    know
anyway
I
          picked  up
                      this
pen
        let it
                   loose
upon
          this
                   page
                   just
                   as
WCW
          did
                  with
                  her 'reply'
to
his
      'just
                  to
                        say'
matter           
         of fact
                    so every
                      day
a
note
           husband 
                  to wife
can
         become
                       so well
                       read
albeit
after
           the poet's
                         dead
NOTE W C Williams 
'Reply'(Flossie's answer to 
'Just to Say')was 
published in the Atlantic 
Monthly Nov 1982
