Disorganized Me

Danse Messy
for WCW

If when all the world is productive
and organized
and the sun is pinking
the morning clouds—
if I wander my shabby apartment
looking for my wallet,
keys and lunch,
waving my fist
in the air shouting,
“Damn! Damn! Damn! Damn!”
If I then sit down
and the memory
of their various locations arise—

Who shall not say my brain fell to my butt
and was pushed back up?

Here’s the poem I parodied:

The William Carlos Williams original

  1. This poems reminds me of my morning routine.

    My favorite line is, “the sun pinking the morning clouds – if I wander my shabby apartment…” Great imagery!
