Poetry Magnum Opus

Short Tale


Recommended Posts


A car door slamming in the night

John Ashbery


Your noise

reached the house


the house filled

of light

the windows


It was opened curtains



in the wind



you left


your noise.

I like how the poem starts with your noise and comes full circle to end with your noise. I also like the layout of the poem.


I'm not so familiar with Ashbery, so I'll check out some of his work.

this poem reminds me a breeze in which a voice is imposed, just blowing through the window and simultaneously enters in the holes of ears and penetrates the sense suddenly which produces a mild vibration in the brains, neurons and got a feelings that wish you could stay with me!


what should i do: give her a call or let the feelings prevails my sense of apathy?


may be it depend on the condition of a relationship!
