    Thanks, cacian. I enjoyed the "murk", "curk", "perk" sounds in yours. I think your parody, Hawkman, was an improvement on the original. As far as liking in general WCW poems, AuntShecky, I don't recall having read enough of them to be able to say.

    Terrific parody of the good doctor's dictum against abstractions in poetry.

    You might like Paterson (one of his book-length poems.) My favorite William Carlos Williams poem is "To Elsie." I'nm sure that you would find that one appealing and affecting, YesNo.

    Come to think of it, I did read a short story of his, "The Use of Force", in my daughter's copy of The Norton Anthology of Short Fiction. After reading it, I recall thinking that it made more sense than "Red Wheelbarrow". I'll try to find "Peterson" and "To Elsie". Thanks for the recommendations.

    it may never try
    but when it does it sigh
    it is just that
    good
    it fly
