Oh, this is sad, especially knowing that there won't be any more of these wonderful poems from him. Sigh. I'm going to go read some more.

Argh, I've just discovered this thread and learned that Michael died! How shocking... I knew him at the end of the 80s, when he performed a lot at Terrible Beauty, a club run in Earl's Court by a friend. He was an immensely gifted poet and a tremendously nice person.

"Forget the here-and-now. We have no time
but this device of wantonness and wit."

How many times today is my heart going to crush my throat, eh?
