WILLIAM CARLOS WILLIAMS IN THE TWENTY-FIRST-AND-A-HALF CENTURY

Soberly surmising
upon arriving
that he can
never again go home,

Williams, ever
the consummate
doctor, rolls up his
coat sleeves

and proceeds
with his ministry—knocking
with even
greater civility

before entering
each door
in this infinite ward
known as

Public Domain.
So much depends,
he intones—
end of poem.
