5.0 out of 5 stars yum, 15 Nov. 2006
This review is from: Lunch Poems (Pocket Poets) (City Lights Pocket Poets Series) (Paperback)
Has there ever been a more friendly, inventive and uplifting little book of poetry than O'Hara's Lunch Poems? I doubt it. Packed with urban panoramas and New York street life yet resolutely bouncy, this tiny volume has taken me to many exciting avenues of the mind and is one I've taken with me to many places in return. Beneath its chatty, camp and humorous surface lurks one of the most fertile imaginations of the twentieth century. Includes 'A Step Away from Them', 'The Day Lady Died', 'Ave Maria' and 'Hotel Particulier'.

Sam I am says:
"It's my lunchbreak so I go for a walk among the hum coloured cabs".......it must be twenty years ago since I read that poem and the whole thing is as fresh in my head now as it was then...although I dont own this book it warmed my heart to see it...poetry isn't always meant to unsettle or challenge....sometimes it can comfort too.
