R.I.P. Bill Hickok

Beyond Baroque mourns the passing of Board Member and Green Poets Workshop leader Bill Hickok

Bill was an outstanding poet who's book The Woman Who Shot me & Other Poems was praised by Al Young who described the book as "...a pillow-book of personable back-stories. 
Bulging with all of life’s male stuff — aims vs. goals, family, fortune, shame, love, wine, women, Kansas City-proof jazz, savvy, fish and game — this thickly beautiful, late-life collection shines like a golden retriever.”

1931 - 2014
