Glazunoviana Poem by John Ashbery

Glazunoviana

Rating: 3.4


The man with the red hat
And the polar bear, is he here too?
The window giving on shade,
Is that here too?
And all the little helps,
My initials in the sky,
The hay of an arctic summer night?

The bear
Drops dead in sight of the window.
Lovely tribes have just moved to the north.
In the flickering evening the martins grow denser.
Rivers of wings surround us and vast tribulation.

Well there are some nice images in this one...surreal but approachable. John, you're considered one of the greatest poets in American...I believe you definitely reached your intended audience with these poems. And you actually reached me a bit...I like surrealism!
