At the close of this season's Episode One, Don Draper reads lines from Frank O'Hara's "Mayakovsky" as he mails O'Hara's book "Meditations in an Emergency" to an unknown recipient.
Last night's season finale was appropriately titled after the O'Hara book, given the personal and national emergencies being played out on the screen. But what of the title poem? Read it here. Seems that the poem hovers over the entire season. And that the line "I am the least difficult of men. All I want is boundless love" is true of each character. Do you agree?
