I did not know the poet Jake Adam York, but his name was one of those that seemed to be popping up everywhere of late, a sign that his best work lay ahead of him. His sudden passing yesterday at the age of 40 further darkens what was already a somber winter weekend.
He had just been awarded an NEA fellowship in November.
Here is one of his most recent poems, “Self-Portrait as Superman (Alternate Take),” from the New England Review.
