Poetry Breakfast #6 – The Red Wheelbarrow

The Black Coffee Grinder

The Black Coffee Grinder
no offense to William Carlos Williams

so much depends
upon

a flat burr
grinder

filled with coffee
beans

beside the press
pot

The Red Wheelbarrow
by William Carlos Williams

so much depends
upon

a red wheel
barrow

glazed with rain
water

beside the white
chickens.
