My friend, Mitch Goldwater, turned me on to a poet, Bill Tremblay, via gifting me his excellent book, Duhamel: Ideas of Order in Little Canada. He's a real gone poet, and I highly recommend him to all my Kerouac friends.
Indeed, Tremblay wrote a poem titled, "Jack Kerouac's Funeral." Read it here.
I love how he captures not only the feel of the day but Jack's voice as well.
Right on and thanks, Mitch.
