Paterson lies in the valley under the Passaic Falls

its spent waters forming the ouline of his back.


Say it, no idea but in things


a man like a city and a woman like a flower

—who are in love. Two women. Three women.

Innumerable women, each like a flower.



only one man—like a city.


~ William Carlos Williams, from Paterson


I took this photo yesterday at the Great Falls National Park. How is it that I worked nearby for years & never moseyed over here. I was so moved to see the same sight as the cover of Paterson, a book I've been reading constantly for decades. 


This post begins a week of Williams or until I run out of pictures that I took yesterday.
