I am often coupled with Frank O’Hara these days, because of our poems about the movies and movie stars, considered to be a genre we pioneered. But before all that, when we had our brief affair in 1955, I’d come to a dead end in my poetry, and I’d just walked out of my group analysis that had shredded my already-shaky ego. I felt burned out, so when Frank invited me up to his place after we met at the Egan Gallery, I was willing to try anything. [...]In honor of O’Hara’s 80th birthday, the Poet’s House, the Poetry Project at St. Mark’s Church, and MoMA are hosting the Frank O’Hara Festival from Nov. 28-30.
