So much depends
On a yellow gold fish

Inside the white kitten

Hee!

Variations on a Theme by William Carlos Williams
Kenneth Koch

1
I chopped down the house that you had been saving to live in next summer.
I am sorry, but it was morning, and I had nothing to do
and its wooden beams were so inviting.

2
We laughed at the hollyhocks together
and then I sprayed them with lye.
Forgive me. I simply do not know what I am doing.

3
I gave away the money that you had been saving to live on for the next ten years.
The man who asked for it was shabby
and the firm March wind on the porch was so juicy and cold.

4
Last evening we went dancing and I broke your leg.
Forgive me. I was clumsy and
I wanted you here in the wards, where I am the doctor!

I remember those. They are just as disturbing now as when you regaled me with them twenty years ago. ;-)

and now for schiophrenia at its finest:

The other day, upon the stair
I met a man who wasn't there.
He wasn't there again today,
Oh, how I wish he'd go away

I like that one rather a lot.
