John Ashbery
"Did I say that? One says so many things, and the problem is they all get written down."
Ashbery quotes
These two guys in the front yard--
Are they here to help?
Ashbery
There is the view that poetry should improve your life. I think people confuse it with the Salvation Army.




Ashbery John quotes
In the beginning there are those who don't quite fit in
But are somehow okay. And then some morning
There are places that suddenly seem wonderful:
Weather and water seem wonderful,
And the peaceful night sky that arrives
In time to protect us, like a sword
Cutting the blue cloak of a prince.
