  1. Thanks for reminding me. I had forgotten, although I still find most of his poetry to be unreadable. But his activism makes that incidental!

      Then if you don’t like Rod McKuen’s work don’t read it. As for his private life, its exactly or was exactly that, Private. What the hell difference did it make to you or anyone else. He was a sweet gentle soul who gave so much, worked so hard, and in life and after he was used for all he made.

What do you think?
