Poetry blogging: “which is love assuming the consciousness of itself”


In Favor Of One’s Time
Frank O’Hara

an angel flying slowly, curiously singes its wings
and you diminish for a moment out of respect
for beauty then flare up after all that’s the angel
that wrestled with Jacob and loves conflict
as an athlete loves the tape, and we’re off into
an immortal contest of actuality and pride
which is love assuming the consciousness of itself
as sky over all, medium of finding and founding
not just resemblance but the magnetic otherness
that that that stands erect in the the spirit’s glare
and waits for the joining of an opposite force’s breath
