Oh man, this hurts

Poet, writer, and rocker Jim Carroll died on Friday. I just saw the news in The New York Times.

I am a huge Jim Carroll fan. I loved hearing him read his work out loud and watching him perform his songs. At one event, he kindly and patiently signed every book of his that I owned. I can’t believe he’s dead. This hurts.
