… and a poem by Frank O’Hara
“Why I Am Not A Painter”
I am not a painter, I am a poet.
Why? I think I would rather be
a painter, but I am not. Well,
for instance, Mike Goldberg
is starting a painting. I drop
“Sit down and have a drink” he
says. I drink; we drink. I look
up. “You have SARDINES in it.”
“Yes, it needed something there.”
“Oh.” I go and the days go by
and I drop in again. The painting
is going on, and I go, and the
go by. I drop in. The painting is
finished. “Where’s SARDINES?”
All that’s left is just
letters, “it was too much,” Mike says.
But me? One day I am thinking of
a color: orange. I write a line
about orange. Pretty soon it is a
whole page of words, not lines.
Then another page. There should
so much more, not of orange, of
words, of how terrible orange is
and life. Days go by. It is even
prose, I am a real poet. My poem
is finished and I haven’t
orange yet. It’s twelve poems, I
it ORANGES. And one day in a
I see Mike’s painting, called
thanks everybody !

Nowadays it seems zillions of fake accounts impacted the democratic elections in Us of America (2016) and in Italy (2018).
The frontier of Social media is on the public eyes as a challenge for Democracies in Western world. Commercials in Politics is a well known thing since birth of Press and the rise of Public opinion.
Internet is a good thing, everyone in the world have thank the english-speaking countries for that, in primis the U.S.A. The debates about wrong/good President of America is still growing and it will be reviewed on its merits but what I mean is a warmful praise to America because this Country demonstrates to be a great Democracy until the free speech is a guaranteed as it is.
People are allowed to criticize the Politics using their legitimate social accounts, this is egalitarianism (or direct Democracy) as Jean-Jacques thought centuries ago. But, the fake accounts are still a problem hence I hope the true free speech must legitimated by a real account when published on the Internet.
Excuse moi, I am thinking as being Jean-Jacques Rousseau.
i ask to you dear aficionado(s),
please do not divulgate thi(e)s(e) picture(s)
