“Shock,” by C.K. Williams

June 16, 2011

This one punches its beak through the dead breast of a dove or albino sparrow.

I read “Shock” from my summer class textbook, The Compact Bedford Introduction to Literature (9th ed.), edited by Michael Meyer. Before it was anthologized there, Williams published it in his book, Repair (Farrar, Straus, & Giroux, 2000).
