Good Night 27
I'd like to take the opportunity to share with you these brief selections from Frank O'Hara; born June 1926 and died July 1966.
"Now I am waiting for the catastrophe of my personality,
to seem beautiful again" - Meditations in an Emergency
"I am the least difficult of men. All I want is boundless love.
Even trees understand me! Good heavens, I lie under them, too,
don't I? I'm just like a pile of leaves." - Mayakovsky
"there is no snow in Hollywood
there is no rain in California
I have been to lots of parties
and acted perfectly disgraceful
but I never actually collapsed
oh Lana Turner we love you get up" - Poem (Lana Turner Has Collapsed!)
