he will know where to find you

Micaela of dolce vita (one of my very oldest and very dearest blogging friends--she's from Texas too and we're kindred spirits we are) brought the following chunk of poem to my attention:

taken from "At North Farm"
by John Ashbery

Somewhere someone is traveling furiously toward you,
At incredible speed, traveling day and night,
Through blizzards and desert heat, across torrents,
   through narrow passes.

But he will know where to find you,
Recognize you when he sees you

oh Micaela, you know me so well. Perfection, the poem. 

and so all i can say is, okay,

Hi Meg-pie
(assuming intimacy yes, but the name just came to me and it sounded so damn cute)
1. Jeffrey MacDaniels- art in words, just beautiful.

2. lemonaer@hotmail.com- ask away!

PS: I just got back from Paris!

Helen said...

It's true! He'll recognize you!

This is just beautiful, as are so many of Ashbery's poems. And so are you, Meg.

Ha, I know the feeling. I, too, am prepared to hunker down with a good book and wait.

I'm crying. Wow girl.

I'm waiting too. xo

Meg again, you've made my day (or night, since it's 12:48 in our TX time). I whole-heartedly thought of you when I read that in the last book i was reading. I dog-eared the page and everything.

He WILL find you, that I'm certain.

Maybe he'll find you while you're reading a book, not even seeing the world around you, not expecting him. Le sigh.
