You should look up more often
Says poet’s sun from fire island.

From a fire island the sun reads
Poet’s poems ,embraces his sky

Telling poet you should look up
But the poet squints at that sun.

Looking up causes such a sprain.
May a sun disappear in the hills.

You may look down more often
At earth, where poems are dust.

(reading O’Hara’s poem A True Account of Talking To The Sun on Fire Island)
