Williams’ book of poetry is her communication to the world
TEXAS CITY NATIVE Dory Williams’ longtime love affair with poetry recently reached a milestone
with the publication of her first book, “Imitations of Love Poems,” co-written with Dustin
Pickering. The book, published by Transcendent Zero Press, is also available on Amazon.com
and Kindle.
“I don’t where I would be without my writing,” said Williams. “It’s cool knowing that others will
finally get a chance to see my work.”
Over the course of nearly 60 pages, Williams shares more than 100 pieces of her work, which
began in 1995 shortly after an illness forced her to return home during her freshman year at
the University of Texas, where she was studying English.
“I have to write, or I would go crazy,” she said. “I don’t write to make money, but although that
would be nice, writing is my way to communicate to the world.”
Williams found solace in writing poetry, and she does not hold back her emotions.
In “Jesus, What’s Fair,” Williams taps deeply into her spiritual side, which also contributed to
her being able to overcome her challenges.
The final portion of the poem begins with:
My wounds start in my head
“Love your enemies,” the Bible said.
My wounds make it hard to forgive.
But I do know what I can learn how to live.
I endure wounds and sores and
In your heart my wounds add to yours.
But for your sake my wounds are healed.
And now that I think about it,
Many times I’ve kneeled,
When my dreams for you make a promise sealed!
Much of her work in the book focuses on love, including “The Border of the Neck,” which
Williams gleefully admits is a tribute to her favorite entertainer, talk show host Stephen
Colbert.
“My ultimate dream would be to have him read it on his show,” she said.
Williams and Pickering have not decided to do another book as of yet, but Williams does have
dozens more poems she would like to communicate to the world.
“I want to see how this works out first,” said Williams of her current work.
