is a simulacrum
to all but him whose days
are vast and grey, and–
In the tall, dried grasses
a goat stirs
with nozzle searching the ground.
–my head is in the air
but who am I…?
And amazed my heart leaps
at the thought of love
vast and grey
yearning silently over me.

These poems are found in the collection SOUR GRAPES by William Carlos Williams. Available as a [easyazon-link asin=”B004TS7XWM” locale=”us”]FREE ebook for Kindle[/easyazon-link]
