You What?

A new poem

by John Ashbery
Serious eaters from here to Kankakee welcome
the disaggregation of religion into irreducible
chips, dot dot dot. Carsick in Canada you can
feel it coming up. You can feel it coming.

We hope you enjoy this excerpt.

To read the full piece, please purchase a copy of the magazine from The McSweeney’s Store.
