Meditations in an Emergency by Frank O’Hara

I first heard about this poetry collection – and the poem of the same name – from the TV show Mad Men. I knew I had to buy the book, and when I’d read it once I knew I had to again. O’Hara says so much about knowing yourself… these really are poems to learn by heart and recite when you’re forgetting who you really are.
