I was very sad to hear the news about Paul--I had the good fortune to land in his writing workshop at the poetry project many years ago, and it blew my mind. I feel like he was one of three teachers who were instrumental in my finding my writing voice. He was not only a great poet, but a great man--his wonderful spirit, strange and brilliant sensibility, and beautiful heart will never leave this world. A true poet in every sense of the word. Goodbye Paul--I treasure your presence in this world, and trust that you are lighting up whatever world you are in now.
