Daniel Lynch (‘The Great Stromboli’) - d. April 9th 2019

You perfected the peculiar,
worked with fire and steel
to earn your license to thrill.
The Strangest Show On Earth
plays to dazzled houses, still.

Dr John - d. June 6th 2019

There’s something bitter
in the gumbo tonight:
splinters of ivory,
herbs and bad voodoo.
Mac is gone, trippin’ 
beyond the reach 
of any medicine.

Paul Darrow - d. June 3rd 2019

Out beyond Star One
there is a planet, haven
for hackers and swindlers,
the serially betrayed,
the terminally cynical.
I hope you finally made
it there, down and safe.

Jake Black - d. May 21st 2019

Heard you at the tollbooths,
an accent I couldn’t explain,
part Bakersfield, part Nashville,
part Coldharbour Lane.
Fell asleep this morning,
never woke up again.
