Frank O'Hara

It seems they were all cheated of some marvelous experience which is not going to go wasted on me, which is why I'm telling you about it:

Ann found this poem in one of our anthologies in college. Hearing her read it outloud made me love it. Frank O'Hara does a good job too.

If this doesn't do much for you than try listening to Don Draper reading another O'Hara poem. So, so fine. The worlds are perfect for this gloomy day.

Don Draper says what?! It must be postmodern.

I really do have the St. Sebastian look. You should see me with some arrows!

Oh darling, I knew you still felt the same.

Yours eternally,


thanks for the steamy don draper footage!

it's really more of a taupe than an orange, but that's lovely either way, dear!

SFP, so nice of you to comment! Last I heard from you was in a postcard from the top of the Eiffel Tower. Wasn't sure if you were still alive.
