Dick Gallup (1942–2021)

From “The Wacking of the Fruit Trees,” in Above the Treeline (Bolinas, CA: Big Sky, 1976).

The poet Dick Gallup died last month at the age of seventy-nine. With Ted Berrigan, Joe Brainard, and Ron Padgett, he belonged to what John Ashbery jokingly called “the soi-disant Tulsa School” of poetry. Here, from Tulsa Public Radio, is an obituary.

[Ashbery was making a joke on the so-called New York School of poetry.]
