“And if it comes back to being all alone
at the starting gate, so be it. We hadn’t wanted
this fuss, these extras. We were calm
under an appearance of turmoil, and so we remain
even today, an unwanted inspiration
to those who come immediately after
as well as those who came before, lots of them,
stretching back into times of discussion.

I told you so, we can handle it, hand on
the stick shift headed into the billboard
labeled Tomorrow, the adventures of new music,
melismas shrouding the past and the passing days.”

– John Ashbery, “Episode” from Planisphere
