Man, that's sad news. I've been reading his poetry for maybe 30, 35 years (I don't care that much for his fiction). I know he's been in ill health for a long time...but, damn...This from 2008, but it's sort of appropriate:BARKING DOGThe moon comes up. The moon goes down. This is to inform you that I didn’t die young. Age swept past me but I caught up. Spring has begun here and each day brings new birds up from Mexico. Yesterday I got a call from the outside world but I said no in thunder. I was a dog on a short chain and now there’s no chain.
DALVA is very good. RIP, Jim.
