    What thoughts I have of you tonight, Walt Whitman, for I walked down the sidestreets under the trees with a headache self-conscious looking at the full moon. In my hungry fatigue, and shopping for images, I went into the neon fruit supermarket, dreaming of your enumerations!
    Allen Ginsberg (b. 1926)

    Camerado! This is no book;
    Who touches this touches a man.
    —Walt Whitman (1819–1892)

    The door is opening. A man you have never seen enters the room.
    He tells you that it is time to go, but that you may stay,
    If you wish. You reply that it is one and the same to you.
    It was only later, after the house had materialized elsewhere,
    That you remembered you forgot to ask him what form the change would take.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
