    I can see how this poem might fit into the surreal and Dada categories. It certainly take one to unusual places. Ashbery was also transgressive in his elite world when he wrote, 'Popeye chuckled and scratched his balls.' It is an odd little piece. One wonders what he was like as a youth...a wild rich boy...or an odd academic...or what? (Report) Reply
