What is it with the poets dying? Lorenzo Thomas... now Gustav Sobin. I feel it most poignantly when the poet is one in my peripheral vision, one I've never paid my full attention to. I feel I've failed such poets, not having read him or her more assiduously during their lifetime.

As the late Mexican painter and essayist Eduardo Cohen used to say, "se está muriendo gente que antes no se moría". ;)

That's a great quote. For those without Spanish:

"People are dying . . . who didn't used to die."
