#Poesia “Tomar Uma Coca Cola Com Você” – Frank O’Hara


Having a Coke with you is even more fun than
going to San Sebastian, Irún, Hendaye, Biarritz, Bayonne or being sick to my stomach
on the Travesera de Gracia in Barcelona partly because in your orange shirt you look like
a better happier St. Sebastian partly because
of my love for you, partly because
of your love for yoghurt partly because of the fluorescent
orange tulips around the birches partly because of the secrecy our smiles
take on before people and statuary it is hard to believe
when I’m with you that there can be anything as still as solemn
as unpleasantly definitive as statuary when right in front of it in the warm New York 4 o’clock light
we are drifting back and forth between each other like a tree
breathing through its spectacles and the portrait show seems to have
no faces in it at all, just paint you suddenly wonder why
in the world anyone ever did them I look at you and I would rather look at you
than all the portraits in the world except possibly for
the Polish Rider occasionally and anyway
it’s in the Frick which thank heavens you haven’t gone to yet
so we can go together for the first time and the fact that you move so beautifully
more or less takes care of Futurism just as at home I never think
of the Nude Descending a Staircase or at a rehearsal a single drawing of Leonardo
or Michelangelo that used to wow me and what good does all
the research of the Impressionists do them when they never
got the right person to stand near the tree
when the sun sank or for that matter Marino Marini
when he didn’t pick the rider as carefully as the horse it seems they were all cheated
of some marvelous experience which is not going to go
wasted on me which is why I’m telling you about it Voiceover talent

  1. Olá Hermes Figueiredo, um poema de quem era a frente de seu tempo. Pessoas geniais ne. Sempre são compreendidas.
    Um poema que a meu ver, demonstrava a intimidade de falar a amada mostrando o que ela já conhecida dele, sem fazer um "tipo", sendo ele mesmo, autêntico e fiel ao que gostava ou não, aos interesses de cada um.

    Não conhecia, muito lindo.
    Obrigada.
