Jim Carroll, 8/1/1949 - 9/11/2009

There will always be a poem
I will climb on top of it and come
In and out of time,
Cocking my head to the side slightly,
As I finish shaking, melting then
Into its body, its soft skin
--Jim Carroll, "Poem"


  1. This makes me so happy. Jim Carroll rocks! Have you seen Poetry in Motion? If not, you absolutely MUST see it Miss MAB :) I love the way he reads. He captivates me...

  2. Oh, Lost, he passed away on Friday. I didn't know until this morning. He had such a huge influence on my creative life.

  3. Oh my goodness! I didn't even notice the date span at the top of your post! I didn't hear about this either, til now. Crazy and very sad! :(

  4. I have never heard of this guy.Must google him,he looks pretty intense,I like it.
