“Soonest Mended,” by John Ashbery
"This poem communicates something to me, even though I don't really understand it. It captures a certain poignancy about how we live in our current age of media saturation, consumerism and mediated experiences. "Soonest Mended" sees a sort of luminousness and beauty even in the mundane and ordinary state of day-to-day confusion in which we live our lives. I like the confusing shift in voices (we, I, you) and the way the poem moves from ordinary speech to wonderfully lyrical moments."
