    Gracious, it’s VD

    I’m in love with the poet Frank O’Hara. The fact that in life he was gay and the other fact that in life he is dead matter not a whit to me because how not to love a man so full of  strange, tender hardassery?


    Animals
    Frank O’Hara
    1950

    Have you forgotten what we were like then
    when we were still first rate
    and the day came fat with an apple in its mouth

    it’s no use worrying about Time
    but we did have a few tricks up or sleeves
    and turned some sharp corners

    the whole pasture looked like our meal
    we didn’t need speedometers
    we could manage cocktails out of ice and water

    I wouldn’t want to be faster
    or greener than now if you were with me O you
    were the best of all my days

    Having A Coke With You
    Frank O’Hara
    1960

    is even more fun than going to San Sebastian, Irún, Hendaye, Biarritz, Bayonne
    or being sick to my stomach on the Travesera de Gracia in Barcelona
    partly because in your orange shirt you look like a better happier St. Sebastian
    partly because of my love for you, partly because of your love for yoghurt
    partly because of the fluoresent orange tulips around the birches
    partly because of the secrecy our smiles take on before people and statuary
    it is hard to believe when I’m with you that there can be anything
    as still 
as solemn as unpleasantly definitive as statuary when right
    in front of it 
in the warm New York 4 o’clock light we are drifting back and forth
    between each other like a tree breathing through its spectacles

    and the portrait show seems to have no faces in it at all, just paint
    you suddenly wonder why in the world anyone ever did them
    I look
    at you and I would rather look at you than all the portraits in the world
    except possibly for the Polish Rider occasionally and anyway it’s in the Frick
    which thank heavens you haven’t gone to yet so we can go together the first time
    and the fact that you move so beautifully more or less takes care of Futurism
    just as at home I never think of the Nude Descending a Staircase or
    at a rehearsal a single drawing of Leonardo or Michelangelo that used to wow me
    and what good does all the research of the Impressionists do them
    when they never got the right person to stand near the tree when the sun sank
    or for that matter Marino Marini when he didn’t pick the rider as carefully
    as the horse
    it seems they were all cheated of some marvellous experience
    which is not going to go wasted on me which is why I am telling you about it

    I love that wine glass. This was the year I finally got my anatomical heart tattoo. This also seems to be the year of being taken down a peg and giving to others, living from the heart instead of the brain. It hurts and feels good all at the same time.
