Liam Rector...

Liam Rector, director of the fine Bennington MFA program took his own life a couple of days ago. His recent book, The Executive Director of the Fallen World, is well worth a read if you like contemporary poetry.

Here's a very short poem of Rector's called Larkin:

The most even-
Tempered man
Ever known:

Always in a rage.

Nice economy, there. Good line breaks. Funny. Sorry to lose him.
