Rest in Peace, Ai (1947-2010)
Another great poet/artist has passed away. The poet Ai died this past Friday. I don't know the details about her death, only that I am saddened by her death because she was quite influential on my early work as a poet and as a person.
During my time at ASU, I had the pleasure of meeting Ai and shuttling her back and forth to a few engagements. She was chatty, curious, and frighteningly brilliant.
Rest in peace.
