Loneliness Among Poets – A Sputnik Poem

Street Aarhus

Sputnik says:

When I sit in my room,
and I am a little bored,
it may happen that I just for killing time
compare the poets
W.H. Auden and John Ashbery.

Auden, for example, wrote in his poem
Funeral Blues:
“He was my North, my South
my East and West.”

While Ashbery wrote in his poem:
Worsening Situation:
“East or West
North or South
It is ever a stranger
Who walks beside me.”
