John Ashbery quotes - 10 of
I lost my ridiculous accent without acquiring another
You have original artworks hanging on the walls oh I said edit
What is the past, what is it all for? A mental sandwich?
You hold me up to the light in a way
I should never have expected, or suspected, perhaps ...
I prefer "you" in the plural, I want "you,"
You must come to me, all golden and pale ...
The boy seemed to have fallen
From shelf to shelf of someone's rage.
No one could begin to mop up this particular mess.
Thunder lay down in the heart. ...
These wonderful things
Were planted on the surface of a round mind that was to become our present time.
And the truth is cold, as a giant's knee
Will seem cold.
Once a happy old man
One can never change the core of things, and light burns you the harder for it.
