Was shocked and sad to find out that L.A. poet Erica Erdman passed away yesterday.
I didn't know Erica that well, but she was a class act as a person and as a member of the tribe called "the poetry community."
Met Erica in the late 90s at Amelie Frank's reading series at the Hot House in North Hollywood. Saw her last at the 2009 Newer Poets reading at the Downtown Los Angeles
Here's a link to Amazon.com for Erica's book THE APOCALYPTIC KID:
