    ... it was not very unusual at Washington for a lady to take the arm of a gentleman, who was neither her husband, her father, nor her brother. This remarkable relaxation of American decorum has been probably introduced by the foreign legations.

    The ingrained idea that, because there is no king and they despise titles, the Americans are a free people is pathetically untrue.... There is a perpetual interference with personal liberty over there that would not be tolerated in England for a week.

    I am cozily ensconced in the balcony of my face
    Looking out over the whole darn countryside, a beacon of satisfaction
    I am. I’ll not trade places with a king. Here I am then, continuing but ever beginning
    My perennial voyage....
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
