I wrote this poem in response
to the hypothetical people who may
think that me hitting a hard return
after only a few words does not
qualify as poetry.

Well, how dare you say
this isn’t poetry. With that
attitude, I bet you’d say the
same thing about
William Carlos Williams.

Which I can totally understand
because I once said the same
thing about William Carlos Williams.
But therein lies the genius of
William Carlos Williams.
