The Morning Reading: "Imagine!"

I have always admired Frank O'Hara's exclamation points.

Autobiographia Literaria

When I was a child
I played by myself in a
corner of the schoolyard
all alone.

I hated dolls and I
hated games, animals were
not friendly and birds
flew away.

If anyone was looking
for me I hid behind a
tree and cried out "I am
an orphan."

And here I am, the
center of all beauty!
writing these poems!

Yes. He seems to get away with them as most people cannot.
