C. K. Williams: The Poet

CK_Williams

[. . .]

Poets try to help one another when we can: however competitive we are,
          and we are,
the life’s so chancy, we feel so beleaguered, we need all the good will we
          can get.

Whether you’re up from a slum or down from a carriage, how be sure
          you’re a poet?
How know if your work has enduring worth, or any? Self-doubt is almost
          our definition.

[. . .]

                         –C. K. Williams, from “The Poet”
