'The System'

'If by chance you should be diverted or distracted for a moment from awareness of your imprisonment by some pleasant or interesting occurence, there is always the shape of the indavidual day to remind you.'- John Ashbery, 'The System' (from Three Poems).

'We know that we are en route in a certain sense, and also that there has been a hitch somewhere: we have as it were boarded the train but for some unexplained reason it has not yet started'-John Ashbery, 'The System' (from Three Poems).
