Reginal Shepherd: 1963 – 2008

The poet Reginal Shepherd has died after a heroic battal against cnacer during which he continued to write poems and weblong entries. I only met him once. Both on the page & in person, his commitment to honesty, clarity, & beauty are what I will remember. He was, truly, one of the makers. [See also this, from people who knew him well.]
