A belated heavenly birthday to Beat poet Ruth Weiss


Noted Beat poet Ruth Weiss was born on yesterday's date -- June 24 -- in 1928. I could not verify whether she appeared in any of Jack Kerouac's works.

HERE is a link to a documentary film about Weiss. You can read about her interactions with Kerouac HERE. It's a bit of a challenge to find her poetry online, but with some Googling you can find some.

Happy heavenly birthday, Ms. Weiss.
