John Ashbery

John Ashbery

Thinking about John Ashbery’s eyes
that intense stare from every photo

those ever-vigilant painterly eyes
that see or saw everything

in the most minute detail
that never miss or missed a thing

that never sleep :
and the mind behind those eyes

constantly striving to fit
the right words to the right thing

creating a poetic order
of the first order
