My New Favorite Poet is: Weldon Kees

My New Favorite Poet is a poet who had a varied career and a disappearance shrouded in mysterious circumstances: Weldon Kees. I discovered him via this article on the Poetry Foundation’s website. I really love his poem “A Late History” (such a great line: “I eat black pudding and the dove descends.”) and was quite intrigued by what did or did not happen to him.
