Is poetry the proper response to world events? This may be the only place you'll ever find an answer! Certainly nowhere else on radio will you hear Ed Dorn's "Gunslinger" coupled with Russian poetry from Klebnikov and Ahkmatova (in English), while an impromptu screed about the budge deficit gets a boost from a Philip Larkin poem about money. What conclusion can we reach from such variety? If you're asking Glenn O'Brien and Max Blagg, the answer must be a 1965 love poem to John Ashbery, from the English poet Lee Harwood. All bases covered. Of course.
