  1. Frank is buried a couple of miles from here in the same cemetery as Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner, Stuart Davis, Ad Reinhardt and Gary McFarland.

    Somewhat forgotten poems, these days…thanks for posting.

    • My. For some reason, I didn’t realize that they were all together. Sounds like the resting place is like an East Coast-U.S. Pčre Lachaise. I have always loved Frank O’Hara’s — and truly spooked by the way he met his end. “The Day Lady Died” is one of my all-time favorite poems. He does so much in such a small space — mood/emotion/voice. Some of his work has always felt to me like a grainy snapshot of a moment.

  2. This film clip itself is also noteworthy…I’d never seen it. Do you have any other details about it?
    Looks like it must’ve been from a Public Television news/arts program.
