John Ashbery in “The Bungalows” in The Double Dream of Spring announces

We shall very soon have the pleasure of recording
A period of unanimous tergiversation in this respect

And it so happens he ends the poem thus

For standing still means death, and life is moving on,
Moving on towards death. But sometimes standing still is also life.

And this is how we breathe life into poetry, by our pauses.

And so for day 379
