“I Wanna Be Your Lover,” live, Capitol Theatre (Passaic, N.J.), 1982
Whatever we’re dealing with catches us
in mid-reconsideration. It’s beautiful,
my lord, just not made to be repeated,
It was a moment, what can I say.
—John Ashbery (1927-), Breezeway (2015), fragments (“A Breakfast Radish,” “Domani, Dopodomani”)
