Tapa Notebooks

p 82



to W.C. Williams
for writing out of the possibility of not writing
or writing out that possibility
– The Descent of Winter –
writing out of a situation
where writing seems impossible

all of this lost
on fans of the ‘writing school’ Williams.
I think of his anger ‘that good doctor’
(from which Paterson even
was a falling off, though a fine one)
the reclamation of an older
more surreal America, its pure products
crazier now than ever
