Having a Coke With You

Recently I just watched "Beastly",a romantic fantasy film, starring Alex Pettyfer and Vanessa Hudgens. It was retelling the story of Beauty and the Beast...

 I found that the poem inside the movie is attracting me very much...The poem is as below:

"Having a Coke With You" by Frank O'Hara

Having a Coke With You

is even more fun than going top San Sebastain, Irun, Hendaye, Biarritz, Bayonne
or being sick to my stomach on the Travesera de Gracia in Barcelona
partly because in your orange shirt you look like a better happier St. Sebastian
partly because of my love for you, partly because of your love for yoghurt
partly because of the fluoresent orange tulips around the birches
partly because of the secrecy our smiles take on before people and statuary
it is hard to believe when I'm with you that there can be anything 
as still as solemn as unpleasently definitive as statuary when right in front of it
in the warm New York 4 o'clock light we are drifting back and forth
between each other like a tree breathing through its spectacles
and the portrait show seems to have no faces in it at all, just paint
you suddenly wonder why in the world anyone ever did them
I look at you and I would rather look at you than all the portraits in the world
except possibly for the Polish Rider occasionally and anyway it's
in the Frick which thank heavens you haven't gone to yet so we can go
together the first time
and the fact that you move so beautifully more or less takes care of Futurism
just as at home I never think of the Nude Descending a Staircase or
at a rehearsal a single drawing of Leonardo or Michaelangleo
that used to wow me
and what good does all the research of the impressionists do them
when they never got the right person to stand near the tree
when the sun sank
or for that matter Marino Marini when he didn't pick the rider
as carefully as the horse
it seems they were all cheated of some marvelous experience
which is not going to go wasted on me which is why I'm
telling you about it.

 Though I don't quite understand the meaning behind this poem but the way they read the poem to each other just seems so sweet and romantic to me...

This movie is recommended to those romance lovers...Pure love story touches my heart =)
Also, Alex Pettyfer is so damn hot though he was being ugly for almost 1 year...Sizzling hot 6 packs!!! :D
