At Gregg Bordowitz’s lecture at Scripps last Thursday, I was very moved by the poetry of his friend, Donald Woods. I searched Woods’ name on Google, and found his obituary from 1992 in the Archives section of the New York Times. It is linked below.
I also searched to find an example of Woods’ poetry, as it had such a resonating power to me. It wasn’t easy to find his work on YouTube, which was upsetting to me, but I was able to find a quick clip of Donald’s poetry being performed at a 1987 fundraiser.
