My answer to William Carlos Williams – so much depends upon a dog

Williams Carlos Williams:

So much depends

Upon

A red wheel

Barrow

Glazed with rain

Water

Beside the white

Chickens.

~~~~

Me:

So much depends

upon

the tension

in the muscles

of a white dog

bowed

in earnest

as it

slowly, deliberately, tauntingly,

squeaks

the purple squeaky ball

with

its smiling teeth.

~~~~

To Neil Gaiman and to Cabal, the latter of whom died recently. I’m so sorry for your loss, Mr. Gaiman. Truly I am. Nothing is ever the same. I can only say it is worth it for the happiness you share.
