William Carlos Williams Poems (1995), for high voice (D4-A5) is a multi-stylistic art song cycle. The first song, subtitled  "A medium-tempo ragtime with sprechstimme recitative," showcases a macabre, expressionist musical theater vibe. The second tune, subtitled "A jazz ballad haiku," is spare and soulful. The piece concludes with a third song subtitled "A swirling, shifting, assymetrical, samba-like groove".  The first song incorporates extended piano techniques.
