LeRoi Jones, who changed his name to Amiri Baracka and was a militant, a racist, and a "tireless agitator". A quote: "We want poems that kill….assassin poems, poems that shoot guns/wrestle cops into alleys/and take their weapons leaving them dead/with tongues pulled out and sent to Ireland". LeRoi bit the dust on Jan. 9, 2014 and now his mouth is finally shut.

Amiri Baraka: Controversial Author And Activist Dies At 79 http://huffpost.com/us/entry/4570912
Amiri Baraka Dead: Controversial Author And Activist Dies At 79 Amiri Baraka, the militant man of letters and tireless agitator whose blues-based, fist-shaking poems, plays and criticism made him a provocative and groundbreaking force in American culture, has died. He was 79. Perhaps no writer of the 1960s and '70s was more radical or polarizing than the former LeRoi Jones, and no one did more to extend the political debates of the civil rights era to the world of the arts.
Amiri Baraka ~ Transformed from Beat Caravan of Allen Ginsberg & Kerouac to Leader of Black Arts Movement; Ally of Black Power, rejecting liberal optimism of early '60s & intensified divide over how & whether black artists should take on social issues. Scorning art for art's sake & pursuit of black-white unity, Barak was part of philosophy calling for teaching Black Art & Black History & producing works bluntly calling for revolution. ~By HILLEL ITALIE 01/09/14 AP http://www.huffingtonpost.com

'Day Jobs of the Poets'. Incidental Comics by Grant Snider, April 2013: http://www.incidentalcomics.com/2013/04/day-jobs-of-poets.html
Book Patrol: Day Jobs of the Poets | Philip Larkin (public librarian) and Emily Dickinson (keeper of cats) FTW!
amandaonwriting: It’s almost the end of National Poetry Month. Grant Snider of Incidental Comics illustrates the day jobs of 12 famous poets. Purchase your poster here
Day Jobs of the Poets I love Grant Snider's work and just found out prints can be ordered from his web site (Incidental Comics).
The inimitable Grant Snider strikes again, with the day jobs of famous poets – including Jack Kerouac (railroad worker), Charles Bukowski (mailman), Emily Dickinson (cat-keeper), and T. S. Eliot (bank clerk.)
Day Jobs of the Poets The latest bookish strip from Grant Snider at Incidental Comics. Who adds: This comic is factual, but it requires a couple clarifications: Wallace Stevens was an executive at an insurance company, not your average insurance salesman. And there's no evidence that Emily Dickinson liked cats, but her sister Lavinia was cat-obsessed. So Emily must have been forced to cat-sit occasionally.

Poetry is more than just a few words hastily scribbled down. Poetry is as feisty as a woman, as fickle as a cat, and beautiful beyond compare. The words will burn in your mind until they flow from your pen and decorate the page with grace and beauty. Poetry is a place for all of your locked away emotions and heart breaking fears to escape in the most beautiful form. Poetry is a way for your soul to sing the words it has forgotten how to speak
