Jake Adam York

I met Jake Adam York when I lived in North Carolina. He published one of my first poems “Mr Whiskers and the Picnic Basket.” I have a broadside of one of his poems celebrating the sensuality of southern BBQ.

It was a shock to hear that he has died this past weekend. Close to my own age.

You can hear him read here:
