One of my reviews noted above is of Dear Almost by Matthew Thorburn. If you scroll down the review, you'll see another poem from "The Ashbery Riff-Offs" which partly was inspired by Matthew's book: "Witnessed in the Convex Mirror: No(t) Words." Working with a John Ashbery poem is a perpetual birthday celebration, as it should be for this poet who just turned 90!
