Poetic Obituaries: The death of Michael Macklin, a Portland poet

and editor at the Cafe Review, has united two sides of the poetic divide--page and stage. He was at Breadloaf writers' camp in Vermont with students from Waynflete School, on Sunday, May 20, when he died. The tributes to him have been pouring in, and both the page poets of the Cafe Review and the stage poets of Port Veritas are in accord: the man was a verse godsend.

Steve Luttrell, editor of Cafe Review, said an upcoming issue is going to be dedicated to him.
