“But I was trying to tell you about a strange thing
That happened to me, but this is no way to tell about it,
By making it truly happen. It drifts away in fragments.
And one is left sitting in the yard
To try to write poetry
Using what Wyatt and Surrey left around....”
—John Ashbery (b. 1927)

Lighted cliffs, against dawns
Of days people will die on.”
