Harvey Goldner, a great poet you've never heard of, dies

Harvey Goldner, a great poet you've probably never heard of, died on July 4th. As it says in his obituary, Harvey lived in Seattle and drove a taxi to make ends meet. More importantly, he'd published several volumes of amazing poetry, along with an upcoming collection titled The Resurrection of Bert Ringold.

His publisher, Cinco Puntos Press, has a nice memorial page up for Goldner. In addition, Bookslack has put together a collection of links to Goldner's poems.

The best thing anyone can do to honor Goldner's life and passing is to read his amazing words and let others know about him.
