Frank O’Hara: ‘To You I Offer My Hull’

77f03b81525c329cf418a4c357baa421“To
you I offer my hull and the tattered cordage
of my will. The terrible channels where
the wind drives me against the brown lips
of the reeds are not all behind me. Yet
I trust the sanity of my vessel ….”
–Frank O’Hara

(Excerpt from To The Harbor Master from Meditations in an Emergency, 1957)
