Thank you – David Hernandez

thankyoudavidhernandez

My friend, David Hernandez,died this week. He was one of my oldest friends and he emboldened me to write poetry seriously. When I first started, he gave me a smile and held out a hand. He was about 5 foot 6 and he was a giant.

Godspeed Poetry Man.  You were a balm and a healing voice in this city, and I was privileged to know you.

See/watch David Hernandez read some of his poetry.
