Hicok afterwards

Thanks to Andrew Shields for posting a link to this poem by Bob Hicok. (Andrew in turn found this link on C.Dale Young's blog: both bloggers are on my blogroll.) Hicok, one can gather from the poem, was one of the Virginia Tech killer's creative writing teachers. He's also fast becoming one of my favourite contemporary poets: I can say that with confidence although I have yet to order a book of his. More links to his work can be found via the label below.
