From City Lights Books:

Lunch Poems, first published in 1964 as Number 19 in the Pocket Poets series, is widely considered to be Frank O’Hara’s freshest and most accomplished collection of poetry. This new, expanded 50th Anniversary edition includes a preface by O’Hara’s friend and fellow poet, John Ashbery, an editor’s note by City Lights publisher Lawrence Ferlinghetti, and a selection of previously unpublished correspondence between Ferlinghetti and O’Hara.
