Although I never met him, he’s been one of my mentors. The reason I wanted to run a bookstore, part of the reason I live in the America I live in. (the good, honest, poetic, outspoken, action, parts) So pour one out, he lived a hell of a life. Check out his Novel, Little Boy, one of the best books published in the last decade. 101. That’s a pretty good run. Cheers. (Below is a first take video of a writer (me) doing a cover of his live performance when he read his poem, Autobiography. It’s only the first page. The words are also posted. Cool. Peace.
