William Carlos Williams and Ken Kesey (& Jerry Garcia)

Two birthdays of note today: William Carlos Williams and Ken Kesey. Here's the Doctor:


The Thing
Each time it rings
I think it is for
me but it is
not for me nor for

anyone it merely
rings and we
serve it bitterly
together, they and I.
William Carlos Williams


And, Mr Kesey:

So, if that thing isn't a telephone, oh, whatever might it be?

Back to you, Ken.

Until tomorrow,
