Passing away of Ira Cohen

I just heard news from Michael Rothenberg that Ira Cohen passed away today, April 25, 2011. Edit: there’s more news here.

A tribute is up at Big Bridge.

My sympathies go out to Michael Rothenberg, a good friend of Ira’s, as well as to Ira’s other friends and family.

I worked with Ira years ago on his art gallery at Big Bridge, and he also granted permissions for me to republish Gregory Corso’s Way Out: A Poem in Discord at Jack Magazine. I remember speaking with him on the phone a couple times, and I’m sure he thought I was naive and backward.
