“W.C. Fields Takes a Walk” by Paisely Rekdal

Paisley Rekdal’s “W.C. Fields Takes a Walk” portrays the very private inner-life of a very public figure, and shows the chasm between the image of the man America latched onto and the man himself. The poem was originally published in Willow Springs 69 before it won a 2014 Pushcart Prize.69-Rekdal-WCFieldsTakesaWalk 1 69-Rekdal-WCFieldsTakesaWalk 2
