Frank’s Valentine

Frank O’Hara thought
The task of art
Was to free the will
Of humanity everywhere
I love his ‘To The Harbormaster’
The archetypal O’Hara poem
To me because it bridges
An old way of speaking
About will and freedom
With a new profligacy
Of ordinary and
Extraordinary things
Everyone around him
Wanted to be him
What does that tell you Billy
