Here is another snippet from that book by John Ashbery. I call such snippets "ashberries." Wheeee! What a wordsmith I am. Anyswayze, here it is. I'm not putting those irritating slashy things in it - you'll have to figure out the line breaks yourself: "A cheer went up, for it was recognized that these are lousy times to be living in, yet we do live in them: We are the case." (Pictured, Frankenberry, not to be confused with John Ashbery. Ashberries would be a terrible cereal. But John Ashbery would be a lovable cereal mascot!)
