Poets Writing Poetry to Other Poets!

This is the first in a series about famous poets writing poetry to one another like they are middle school sweethearts or something. It is so fucking cute I had to draft it with my finger, using my own sugary vomit as ink.

William Carlos Williams to Jane Kenyon:

Three shirts

The color of light blue pills


Hang from a line

In the brown yard


Clouds form on the horizon

To watch.


Jane Kenyon to William Carlos Williams:

The sparrow outside the window

Has only an inkling

Of what goes on inside.

You hunch as if to receive a snap,

Wrist deep inside a plump woman

Who grows more plump each day.

She feels strange for it, ill at ease,

But your thoughts are elsewhere,

With the sparrow.
