Jackson Mac Low (1922-2004)  

From: Charles Bernstein

Jackson Mac Low
a signal force in 20th century poetry
died this morning


Let me choose the kinds of light
to light the passing of my friend


[the] black light of absence
... revelatory light that is no light
the unending light of the realization
that no light will ever light your bodily presence again
Now your poems' light is all
The unending light of your presence
in the living light of your voice

(from 32nd Light Poem for Paul Blackburn)
