    I'm just learning of Bill Knott, and have enjoyed reading his works. Very interesting; his verses go deep. Deepest regrets in learning of his death.

    **For Leona Person: Concerning the poem- 'Advice from the Experts' by Bill Knott. The experts were onlookers - those people who advised the poet not to jump in his attempt to commit ‘suicide.’ Thankfully, he took their advice and his life was spared.

    I've long considered Bill Knott to be among the best poets of our time.
    March 12th,2014 will be known as a sad day for American poetry.

    What does advice from the experts mean
