    John Ashbery died yesterday at 90. He had a varied and, at times patchy, oeuvre but I have always liked this:

    Bequeeth unto me,
    That sweetest sensation,
    Beyond taste or aroma,
    The gentle restlessness from which I find,
    Stale certainties,
    diminished,
    In jest,
    grant this,
    Your top 100 albums list

    Coincidentally I was reading Lorca's poetry for the first time last week. V good, but the man was obsessed with spiders and carnations for some reason. I imagine he'd have written something interesting about the events of yesterday.

    Do you poesy ponces consider Tony Harrison worth reading?

    I happened to read a review of his collected prose/poems in the LRB and I quite liked the extracts that were included.

    kenneth goldsmith:

    "I'm interested in things that are useless. I think that's the beautiful thing about poetry, its uselessness. When you try to make poetry that does something, you betray poetry's essential element of resistance. I think in a culture that is profoundly based on use, to do something useless, to provide a space where something doesn't happen, is about as radical a thing as we can do."
