glowing a little less brightly

harvey fuqua, motown legend, genius producer and marvin gaye's mentor, died yesterday.

he was 80, and he managed to wring so much juiciness out of life, so it's difficult to be sad. after all, not many people get to leave behind songs like 'your precious love', 'ain't no mountain high enough' and 'if i can't have you'. we should all be so lucky, no?

so long, harvey, and thanks for the music.

sometimes i wish

"Sometimes I wish I had a job where I could be quiet, maybe as a jeweler cutting stones. But if poets don’t pass on the enthusiasm for poetry, who will?"

from Bookslut's too-short interview with the brilliant rae armantrout.
