My heart

Written by: Frank O'Hara | Biography
 | Quotes (2) |
I'm not going to cry all the time
nor shall I laugh all the time 
I don't prefer one "strain" to another 
I'd have the immediacy of a bad movie 
not just a sleeper but also the big 
over-produced first-run kind. I want to be
at least as alive as the vulgar. And if
some aficionado of my mess says "That's
not like Frank!" all to the god! I
don't wear brown and grey suits all the time 
do I? No I wear workshirts to the opera 
often. I want my feet to be bare 
I want my face to be shaven and my heart--
you can't plan on the heart but
the better part of it my poetry is open.
