''He did a better job of holding up the mirror of art to the 60s and 70s than any of our official literary poets.'' -Ted Kooser, US Poet Laureate ''He just has a unique ability to haiku it - it's deceptively insightful. It's at once playing on words and imagery, but expressing something deeper in such a succinct way, in such an exceptional way.'' - Bonnie Raitt
