Poem [Lana Turner has collapsed!]

Poem [Lana Turner has collapsed!]

by Frank O'Hara

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

(3) Base Camp

This poem isn't too difficult to understand on a basic level. The speaker is walking around when he learns that Lana Turner has collapsed. He wants her to get up. No biggie. But it can be a little difficult to analyze such a short and seemingly casual poem, because you really do need to pay close attention to every line. We've helped you out with this in the "Summary" section.
