The anniversary of Frank O'Hara's death


Today is also the anniversary (in 1966) of the death of one of my favorite poets, Frank O’Hara, at age 40.

One of my favorite of his poems is “Having a coke with you,” from which I wrote a “take off” of sorts and posted last night.

Here is O’Hara himself reading the poem the year he died:
