This website is dedicated to the Memory of my comrades, friends, lovers, radicals, fellow poets in the circle in and around the Red Balloon Collective and Poetry Conspiracy, the No Spray Coalition, the Brooklyn Greens, and others involved in some of the projects we worked on, who played meaningful roles in our lives and who died before they could get their full licks in (but who at least got in some good ones while they were here). Thank you for standing up for humanity in an era of robots. (Click on their names, for photos and things I’ve written about them over the years. If you’ve written something about them or have photos you’d like to share, please send it to me and I’ll be glad to link to it on this site.)
