Cindy Sherman, Untitled Film Still #48, Chunky Knit via Turned Out, Portrait of Frank O' Hara by Mario Schifano.

The following stanza from the Frank O' Hara poem,'Mayakovsky'  is read by Don Draper in  Ep. 1, Season 2 of Mad Men:

Now, I am quietly waiting for
the catastrophe of my personality
to seem beautiful again,
and interesting, and modern.

The country is grey and
brown and white in trees,
snows and skies of laughter
always and diminishing, less funny
not just darker, not just grey.

It may be the coldest day of
the year, what does he think of
that? I mean, what do I? And if I do,
Perhaps, I am myself again.
