Some tiny creature, mad with wrath,

Is coming nearer on the path.

Commonplace, Williams

Say I am les an artist
than a spadeworker but one
who has no aversion to taking
his spade to the head
of any who would derrogate
his performance in the craft.

You were kind to be at such
pains with me and -- thanks
for the view.

William Carlos Williams, "The Visit"

Which is to say, feel free to comment on my poems. Then duck.
