Experimental poet and author who shattered rules of syntax to reveal meaning. His best-known functions include The Tremendous Area, Tulips and Chimneys, no Thanks. He started composing poetry when he was just eight years of age. He further created his dynamic, contemporary design while he was students at Harvard. He kept conservative political sights, an undeniable fact that appears incongruent along with his radical, rule-breaking literary persona. He was wedded 3 x — to Elaine Orr, Anne Minnerly Barton, and Marion Morehouse — and acquired one little girl. He was inspired with the poetry of Amy Lowell.
