Death of a poet

The Singaporean poet Arthur Yap died recently, of throat cancer. I had never heard of him, but the blogger Mr. Wang has written a very eloquent piece on him, here. Do read it; I may pick up a book of Yap’s poems, if one is available here. He sounds like a poet I might like.

Later note: I have now discovered that Yap was also gay.
