Poetic Obituaries: Peter Douthit, known as Peter Rabbit,

who helped start one of the Southwest's earliest communes and the Taos Poetry Circus, died from liver cancer Saturday morning at his home in Taos. He was 76.

His widow, Anne MacNaughton, said Douthit got involved in communes and poetry performances for the same reason.

"He was always interested in community," she said. "It was pretty much what he was about--people and community."
