News at Eleven: [Tim] Dlugos' willingness to place himself in

others' hands, be it the hands of art, literature, social life or the world at large, his ability to make himself seem small in the face of the wonder of all that surrounds us, even just the "sequence of [flowers'] blooming" as he writes in "July," is one of his most powerful traits as a poet.

But despite Dlugos' wide interests and incredibly active social life of bars, cocktail parties, concerts, art openings and political fundraisers in Washington, D.C. and New York, he will perhaps always be best known as an AIDS poet, for better or worse.
