Our vision of America is so shaped by television and movies. All we see are Hollywood starlets and New York cops. We sometimes forget that there are whole other lives being lived in the middle of America. And some of these lives are really inspiring. —Alec Soth

Thursday

Man in a Room

by William Carlos Williams

by William Carlos Williams

I have had my dream—like others—

Here, no woman, nor man besides,

And it has come to nothing, so that

Nor child, nor dog, nor bird, nor wasp,

I remain now carelessly

Nor ditch pool, nor green thing. Color of flower,

With feet planted on the ground,

Blood-bright berry none, nor flame-rust

And look up at the sky—

On leaf, nor pink gall-sting on stem, nor

Feeling my clothes about me,

Staring stone. Ay de mí!

The weight of my body in my shoes,

No hawthorn’s white thorn-tree here, nor lawn

The rim of my hat, air passing in and out

Of buttercups, nor any counterpart:

At my nose—and decide to dream no more. Bed, book-backs, walls, floor, Flat pictures, desk, clothes-box, litter Of paper scrawls. So sit I here, So stand, so walk about. Beside The flower-white tree not so lonely I: Torn petals, dew-wet, blotched yellow my bare instep.

Henry Wessel, Incidents No. 12, n.d. 196

A poem compresses much in a small space and adds music, thus heightening its meaning. The city is like poetry: it compresses all life, all races and breeds, into a small island and adds music and the accompaniment of internal engines. The island of Manhattan is without any doubt the greatest human concentrate on earth, the poem whose magic is comprehensible to millions of permanent residents but whose full meaning will always remain elusive. —E. B. White

It is with responsibility that both the photographer and his machine are brought to their ultimate tests. His machine must prove that it can be endowed with the passion and the humanity of the photographer; the photographer must prove that he has the passion and the humanity with which to endow the machine. —Dorothea Lange
