This latest STIR CRAZY is one I’m very excited to share, albeit a little late. The past week brought to mind two of America’s great poets: the 25th marked the tragic death of Frank O’Hara & the 28th, the birth of his good friend John Ashbery. HERE is a haunting poem from O’Hara, which seems to prophesy his death on Fire Island (& which may be written posthumously by friend & poet Kenneth Koch). ANOTHER O’HARA POEM, written to his friend Ashes in 1954.
High on a mountain in the wind...
“...the passage of time is the passage of death...
The coolest MODEL of the 90’s.
The messy HEIRESS behind Taylor Swift’s “Last Great American Dynasty” asks a timeless question:
IS THERE A CHIC WAY TO GO?
One’s LOVE LETTER is another’s shot through the heart.
Celebs doing CRAZY THINGS. Wyd, PHOEBE?
