1. Ed Ruscha, I Think I’ll …,1983


President Obama wasn’t always politically-minded. As an undergraduate at Occidental College, he wrote for a student literary journal. From that flash-in-a-pan moment, here is a little-known poem, entitled “Pop”:

Sitting in his seat, a seat broad and broken
In, sprinkled with ashes,
Pop switches channels, takes another
Shot of Seagrams, neat, and asks,
What to do with me, a green young man
Who fails to consider the
Flim and flam of the world, since
Things have been easy for me.
