Every so often, a community loses an extremely important member. That recently happened to the poetry community, with the passing of C.K. Williams. The poet, who won a Pulitzer Prize for his work, tackled issues ranging from war to poverty. He had a big impact on the poetry world, and his memory should live on. For that, today’s poetry excerpt comes from C.K. Williams’ “Butchers.”
“Thank goodness we were able to wipe the Neanderthals out, beastly things,
from our mountains, our tundra—that way we had all the meat we might need.
Thus the butcher can display under our very eyes his hands on the block,
and never refer to the rooms hidden behind where dissections are effected…” C.K. Williams
