Jujubes, Aspirins!

Written by sally @ 8:18 am — Section: sally


Oh! kangaroos, sequins, chocolate sodas!
You really are beautiful! Pearls,
harmonicas, jujubes, aspirins! all
the stuff they’ve always talked about

still makes a poem a surprise!
These things are with us every day
even on beachheads and biers. They
do have meaning. They’re strong as rocks

–Frank O’Hara

(I am really loving Frank O’Hara lately.)
