A Six, A Gull, A Statue

I was going to make this entry a haiku (what else?) that would be this homage (aka look-how-smart-I-am-reference) to the William Carlos Williams poem “The Great Figure,” which I know only by way of the Charles Demuth painting “The Figure 5 in Gold,” which I knew only as “that cool painting at the Met with all the 5s in it” until I Googled it.

But the truth is that haiku, to say nothing of pretention, takes work and I’m just too tired right now to make the effort. So please enjoy this nice photo of a metal sign, a bird, and the Statue of Liberty on its own terms.
