• Final Poem for the Famous Poet

    Phillip B. Williams

    Summer 2021

    Woundwondered, they circle

    you: headless monument erosion had—
    before they thought they knew you though did not—

    Thick fog hides shoulder-up your unhead, hides
    your excellent circumscribed height beneath
    which, chanting, unaware,
    they wreath your senseless marble feet.
