Lana Turner has collapsed! (1)
The speaker begins by informing us of the collapse of a movie star. It's an unexpected topic for a poem, but O'Hara seems to think that celebrity gossip and poems might be more compatible than we think.

LANA TURNER HAS COLLAPSED! (11)
Okay, we get it – it's really important that this movie star has collapsed. It's dramatic! It's nuts! It's changed the course of your day! It's an important event that needs to be memorialized in a poem! (Or is it? What do you think?)

oh Lana Turner we love you get up (17)
The speaker might be winking at us a bit here. His apostrophe to Lana might be a little overblown. It seems like he's admitting that this is a silly topic for a poem. Or is he?
