A Curtal Sonnet for Frank O'Hara

bygreenmountaineer©

"They transubstantiate him more and more.
It wouldn't matter, Lou, if he were Son
of Baʿal," Frank said. "Because their boy was flayed,
crowned, and crucified, the Jew baiters tore
down shtetls and ghettos, hunting Sanhedrin
chums. Ain't nothin' like a good crusade."

LEVITICUS 18 VERSE 22
~
A MAN WHO LAYS WITH ANOTHER HAS SINNED

the picket signs near Fire Island read.
"See the cute little tilde, Lou? Do You,
Mister Sun?" Frank said.
