In 1952, during the McCarthy era, Williams served only a few months as national poetry consultant, an appointment marred by accusations that his poem “Russia” was pro-Communist. Public humiliation and the failure of the literary community to support him precipitated a stroke, followed by diminished sight. He died at home in his sleep on March 4, 1963, and he was buried at Hillside Cemetery in Lyndhurst, New Jersey. Williams, the maverick genius, is remembered for mentoring poets Allen Ginsberg and Kay Boyle and for influencing Robert Lowell, Charles Olson, and Denise Levertov.

The notion of decay, embodied in the dresser lacking knobs, expands with the image of failed pride, which the dead woman once depicted in embroidery as a peacock’s spread tail. The feet of the deceased, grotesquely callused and oddly removed from the attendants’ scurrying, symbolize the cold, unresponsive state of the corpse, now made dumb by the absence of speech. Like the bird’s tail in stitchery, the “horny” feet have surrendered any connection with sexual desire or function.
