Greetings from Ashbery Park
Four of us convened at Clinton's Tavern (standing in for the Cedar Tavern) today to celebrate the 80th birthday of John Ashbery. We read some of his poems and some of his prose, and we wondered if he chortled while he wrote. I showed off a copy of Issue #1 of Locus Solus.
Those present: me, Carl Wilson (the convener), Paul Vermeersch, Erik Rutherford.
Happy birthday, John Ashbery.
Over and out.
