Poem [Lana Turner has collapsed!]

by Frank O'Hara

Analysis: What's Up With the Title?

Because Frank O'Hara called a whole lot of his poems "Poem," most people refer to this one by its first line: "Lana Turner has collapsed!" We don't know why he didn't give it a more interesting title, but we do know it's fun to say "Lana Turner has collapsed!" every time we refer to it.
