Almost As Good

I got John Ashbery’s poetry collection,¬†Commotion of the Birds this week. The very first poem! This is a tiny snippet. Please read the poem – it is so much more than what I’ve shared here. The collection is slow, (I’m not sure why I say that, but it certainly isn’t frantic),¬†fully rounded, fun, true, beautiful and shines a bright light on what you didn’t know you knew.
