I would attend all of these readings. I would sit in the back and feel hideously uncomfortable. I would think about how all of these people are friend, how they have their own clique that excludes me. I would be jealous, I would be insecure, I might even be angry, but I would love it so much. Frank O’Hara at 80, me in the back, watching, dreaming of being inside.
