Ouch! Luke Kennard reviews, or at least pastiche-reviews, Jorie Graham’s latest collection in Stride magazine.
Ouch! again. But as ever with Stride, there’s no shortage of entertainment. And the final word is left to the excellent John Ash, quoted as follows:
you have to worry, confine your worrying
to one subject: money is always a good choice.
Never worry about 'the absurdity of existence,'
or similar large vaguenesses which are really like
the memory of a grandmother who died before you were born.
What good will it do you? And do not become enslaved to anything.
(John Ash, 'Some Words of Advice: After Hesiod')
