Inside A Letter Box

Charles Demuth.  I Saw the Figure 5 in Gold (To W.C.W.). 1928. Oil on cardboard, 90.2 x 76.2 cm. (inspired by the poem below)
The Great Figure, William Carlos Williams (1921)
Among the rain and lights I saw the figure 5 in gold on a red firetruck moving tense unheeded to gong clangs siren howls and wheels rumbling through the dark city.

Among the rain
and lights
I saw the figure 5
in gold
on a red
firetruck
moving
tense
unheeded
to gong clangs
siren howls
and wheels rumbling
through the dark city.
