Painter's Valentine

Was Frank O’Hara
really the last
New Yorker to use
the words parti pris
in any context
let alone speaking
about painters
or about how
a poem can only
be as narcissistic
as its maker
but I still wonder
if that was Jim
(stomach ache?)
Schuyler (lol)
who phones him
in the middle
of that sleeper
