William Carlos Williams

(17 September 1883 – 4 March 1963 / New Jersey)

Classic Scene - Poem by William Carlos Williams

A power-house
in the shape of
a red brick chair
90 feet high

on the seat of which
sit the figures
of two metal
stacks--aluminum--

commanding an area
of squalid shacks
side by side--
from one of which

buff smoke
streams while under
a grey sky
the other remains

passive today--
