It appears Bill Knott has died, for real this time, the bastard. He gave me money once when I needed it. I didn’t ask him to, he just sent me money. He’d send me hand-painted books from time to time. If there’s some other crazy world where he is now, which he doubted, & I doubt, I hope he knows what a pain in the ass he was, & how much we loved him.

 … everywhere
they will be finishing the poems you broke away from.

Poets’ Bookshelves. An ongoing series of posts documenting some of the books collected by our favorite poets. This week: Michael Robbins, author of Alien vs. Predator (Penguin, 2012). His second volume of poems, The Second Sex, will be published by Penguin in the fall. 

See more from this series.

That’s an original 1783 edition of Johnson. I like to imagine he held it in his hands.

Befriended some online animals. 

Proud to be quoted in this extraordinarily good essay by my friend Zach Baron. Assigned to write about internet animal cuteness, he went deep. He met the loris.

The sky was on fire
When I walked to the mill
To take up the slack in the line
I thought of my friends
And the troubles they’ve had
To keep me from thinking of mine
