Frank O'Hara

"So who's perfect? ... Washington had false teeth. Franklin was nearsighted...."

Full 'Frank O'Hara' Quote

The artificial is always innocent.
--Frank O'Hara

When I first read this poem I was seriously confused. The line “flat on a sheet of blood that ran down the stairs” is the line that I question. After reading it a couple times, I figured this line means his lover rolled out the red carpet for him. I pictured a lover laying a bed of rose petals waiting his guest to arrive.

“Why I Am Not a Painter”

"Why I Am not a painter" needs to say why am I poet. I see a self centered man in this poems. This one really lacks any meaning to me.
