Dead Addict Of The Day

Today's dead addict is the poet Michael Dransfield. There is some controversy over whether or not his death was truly related to a heroin overdose, as he had some health problems that had plagued him throughout his youth. The Australian poet died at the age of 25.

Here's a link explaining Dransfield's connection with the drug world.

Here's one of his poems:


you eat ships
you taste wrong
you isolate and desolate
you are not home to man;
yours is the
subtlest beauty.
