Bath (A Tribute to Bonnard)

Sometimes what you really need is a good night in Bath.


Portrait of a Woman at Her Bath

it is a satisfaction
a joy
to have one of those
in the house

when she takes a bath
she unclothes
herself she is no

I laugh at her
an Inca
shivering at the well
the sun is

glad of a fellow to
marvel at
the birds and the flowers
look in

William Carlos Williams


Williams could write a good love poem, really just distilling it to such a basic vision, not unlike Bonnard.


A warm shower knee-deep in water and bad coffee in the morning works too.
