“Today” – Frank O’Hara

Oh! kangaroos, sequins, chocolate sodas! 

You really are 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.
