Excellent! We were just talking tonight with a poet and said, "Ashbery makes collages. Coincidence? We think not!"

And if you haven't seen Bernini's Apollo and Daphne lately, get on over here. It rocks my socks every time.

Wonderful piece, Emma! I really enjoyed it! Barbra

Swell post. Yes, the collage since "The Waste Land" has seemed a visual model of what a poem can be. I love Ashbery's "L'Heure exquise" so much I used it on the cover of "Great American Prose Poems: From Poe to the Present."

I would like to give a shout out to poetess extraordinaire, Emma Trelles! But Ems, why didn't you take me with you to meet the muscly guys? :)

Moira - I have seen a sculptural depiction of this myth at the Louvre, but sadly, I have not been to Italy to see Bernini's version. But it is on my list!

David - I didn't realize that about the cover of "Great American..." You've given me another reason to pick up the book. I love this collage almost as much as you do.

Nikki - You're in Florida now. We can see muscle-men any ole time you want.

Great article, Emma!

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
