RIP Paul Violi, 1944-2011

Just heard that American poet Paul Violi died recently. I had the great pleasure of meeting him about 20 years back when I had him booked for a gig in Lincoln, along with Lydia Tomkiw (also also now longer with us) and Martin Stannard (still thankfully with us, even though resident in China).
