Cut+Paste #1: John Ashbery

When you have hiccups
That’s his game

Divorced from his poetry
Of course, the critics talked

A source of sadness
Naming the never-before-named

Perception, art, and consciousness
We hate nuance

M. Bogen, October 2017
Sampled from Katy Waldman’s tribute to John Ashbery
