Back to School

I’ve always been impressed with the poetry of William Carlos Williams. Williams was a leading member of the Imagist Movement. “Imagism was a movement in early 20th-century Anglo-American poetry that favored precision of imagery and clear, sharp language.” Often, I try to mimic the imagist style. Here’s an effort.

School Book Room

Behind the shelves
the shelves

where books
are stacked

like bricks
mice scurry

through an unswept
dark

on feet
sugared

with the bright
powder

of yellow
chalk.
