DPF / Ashbery

For another poet we will miss, from poetryfoundation.org: July 28, 1927-September 3, 2017.

from How to Continue / by John Ashbery (1927-2017)

And when it became time to go
they none of them would leave without the other
for they said we are all one here
and if one of us goes the other will not go
and the wind whispered it to the stars
the people all got up to go
and looked back on love
