Analysis and comments on Ave Maria by Frank O'Hara

Comment 1 of 1, added on March 13th, 2006 at 9:45 PM.

I learned all about sex as a young teenager in dark movie theatres.
This one hits it on the head, so to speak. The Varsity Theater, near the
Marquette campus in Milwaukee, was a place that showed art films, and as a
high school pseudo-intellectual back in the mid-60's, I learned a lot about
my sexuality from generous college students.
I made some good friends from those encounters; my parents never knew.
I always knew I was gay, and was quite comfortable in those surroundings,
even though I was a dumb high school kid.
I miss those days. Life was much simpler then...
