The Tree of Crows

Caspar David Friedrich, The Tree of Crows, 1822
By SAI GONDI
Arrival

By William Carlos Williams

And yet one arrives somehow, 
finds himself loosening the hooks of
her dress
in a strange bedroom

feels the autumn 
dropping its silk and linen leaves 
about her ankles. 
The tawdry veined body emerges 
twisted upon itself
like a winter wind . . . !
