Poet Adrienne Rich, 82, has died

“You could offer any soul-tricking oarsman
whatever coin you’re still palming but there’s
a divide
between the shores of sickness and the
legendary, purifying
river of death You will have this tale to tell,
you will have to live
to tell
this tale”
“From Sickbed Shores,” Adrienne Rich
