Poets are celebrating Frank O’Hara’s 80’s birthday, first from Ron Silliman, and here.

Let’s be frank about it, his birthday was March 27, 1926.
His birth certificate was found twenty-five years after his death, recorded at Maryland General Hospital. (Page 14, City Poet; The Life and Times of Frank O’Hara by Brad Gooch).

(Frank’s birthday was mentioned once before. Refresh yourself with his poem and Bill DeKooning’ s painting.)
