When I put all of the puzzle pieces together, I realized that home was where the mind was. My heart lay in the streets of metropolises and the summits of skyscrapers, and when I’m ready to migrate north, south, east, or west, that’s where I’ll find it.
Mayakovsky - Frank O’ Hara
Now I am quietly waiting for
the catastrophe of my personality
to seem beautiful again,
and interesting, and modern.
The country is grey and
brown and white in trees,
snows and skies of laughter
always diminishing, less funny
not just darker, not just grey.
It may be the coldest day of
the year, what does he think of
that? I mean, what do I? And if I do,
perhaps I am myself again.
