Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Why typing John Ashbery's "The Instruction Manual" is a good thing [by Dara Wier]:


I am so glad you have a picture of my uncle and his "business" partner. They were always going around stirring up trouble by provoking boundary disputes between heretofore peaceable neighbors. They had a knack for it. Once they wrote a letter for one neighbor suggesting that the other neighbor remove a fence he had carefully and beautifully built on their mutual boundary. My uncle, yes it must have been him, said that the fence "was not a good fence." How provocative!

just the thought of not a good fence, good lord I need me a cry room

hello, I love your post, I like the part that talks about mourn, it is very interesting, thanks for sharing the information!

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.
