no comments? concomitant to the WW 'tweaks' to his poem
was just yesterday listening to Walter Sutton interviewing WCW
in which Williams speaks several times about Walt W's
poetry.... very neat interview.... many points and dots-along-the-way

will see if I can find the interview and send it to you.
