    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

Best Poem of Bill Knott

Escape Plan

I examine
my skin

searching for
the pore

with EXIT
over it

Read the full of Escape Plan

Dearth Demise

Satiety help me I have inhabit
of this world. Extant upon its designs
to be more aimlessly fluttering at
the window, to shadow all the patterns

it offers each sun. In frames far as eye
I draw my words towards a juggler's shards
as if our fallings-down our deaths occurred
but did not involve a lot of colloquialized
