Chilean poet Gonzalo Rojas has penned his last ode
This is true my form is something odd,
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.

Feminist poet Adrienne Rich has died aged 82.

Most annoying for me as that means my sister has a unique hit on the DDP :rant:

Poetry, poets, dead ones, dying ones, deathly ones. Spy corner has demonstrated that there is more than a passing interest among deathlisters in poetry and poets as TF suggested some time ago.

Stanley Kunitz is one among many. Who will be next? Louis Simpson? Gunter Grass, the SS poet? Lawrence Ferlinghetti?

A thread for favourite poems, discourse on all things poetic and, of course, poets who are potential deathlist material. Ernesto Cardenal, Henri Chopin, Robert Creeley, Hans Enzensberger, Tuli Kupferberg, Noel Edmonds: names you are not likely to find in the Big Brother House.

Dedicated to Emily Dickinson, the matriarch of deathly verse.


If you wait long enough it will happen after six years Louis Simpson has died aged 89. He won the 1964 Pulitzer Prize.

F.D Reeve, 84, poet, translator and the father of Superman, has died.

Here's one of his own meditations on death.

The Village Grave Yard

The fallen leaves are red and dry.
Autumn burns. The still lake mirrors
a blue October sky.
In the cemetery the forgiven and unforgiven
lie side by side.


Hoarfrost on the goldenrod.
On the northern mountains new-fallen snow.
Time like a kindly god
reserves some open spaces in each row
for the living dead.


How long do we have who follow the sky?
Beneath the rustling maple leaves
in a green plot eleven by five
these ashy bones compact our fond belief
that the sun won’t die.

F. D. Reeve

That's a shame. I saw Heaney a few times at Poetry International. Good poet; a good man too.

Word around the Twitter campfire is that, tonight, Baraka is spinning around dazed as the words "FINISH HIM" flash above his head.

Sigh.... I knew I shouldn't have picked Sen over Baraka. That's two hits I could've easily had already. Ah well.
