This is not kitsch

Photograph of William Carlos Williams, seated against a pole, with an unidentified man and a donkey (not, for some reason, a white mule). [Not pictured: white chickens, wheelbarrow.]

I'm on a kick of trying to hear their voices--just heard Hemingway's, which wasn't anything like I thought it would be. Can't find Thomas Wolfe's. But as a writer, I have to love Williams--both for his writing and for the fact that he had a real job!
