Frank O'Hara

Thanks to Frank for this excellent essay on the great - and, in Britain, hardly known - poet Frank O'Hara. In America he is just big enough to provide background commentary on big TV shows. I had forgotten 'we fight for what we love, not are' - an eloquent, spare and psychologically decisive dismissal of the politics of identity.
