Poets are both clean and warm
And most are far above the norm
Whether here or on the roam
Have a poet in every home! #57

Jack Gilbert, American poet, died today.  His stock obituary from the Associated Press can be found here, hanging around the Sacramento Bee.

In addition to noteworthy poetry, Mister Gilbert penned two early-to-mid-sixties pornographic novels published by Olympia Press.  Tiger blood indeed.
