John Ashbery

American poet.
The poem is sad because it wants to be yours, and cannot be.More John Ashbery quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
And the way
Though discontinuous, and intermittent, sometimes
Not heard of for years at a time, did,
Nonetheless, move up, although, to his surprise
It was inside the house,
And always getting narrower.More John Ashbery quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In the evening
Everything has a schedule, if you can find out what it is.More John Ashbery quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I don't find any direct statements in life. My poetry imitates or reproduces the way knowledge or awareness come to me, which is by fits and starts and by indirection. I don't think poetry arranged in neat patterns would reflect that situation. My poetry is disjunct, but then so is life.More John Ashbery quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Death is a new office building filled with modern furniture,
A wise thing, but which has no purpose for us.More John Ashbery quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
