The fact that you saw and talked to Andy Warhol three years before his death is amazing! And your description of him..."But the shimmering Tinkerbell flash Of tinsel-toned dandelion fluff
Tickling irresistibly..." is the only allusion to
his hair because you didn't see a man with a wig you saw Andy Warhol. I imagine that's in
keeping with his look that attracted so may people. I think even if people didn't recognize him as a famous artist, they knew he was someone important. What's interesting to me about this poem is that the energy seeping out of every word would have been something he would have liked.
