Something Wonderful

Hey, let’s break the rules and start the weekend a little early! Here’s a lovely gem to help on on our way from one of the poets, who know a thing or two about breaking rules:


Oh! kangaroos, sequins, chocolate sodas!

You are really 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
