Born Dec. 26th 1945, died October 24th 2006, John Gabbert is survived by his son, Sean. John was an unpublished poet living according to his own wishes, wanting to publish after turning 60. Surrendering recognition for a sense of purity before old age, John didn’t make it, but his poems and his story live on in value; and a project to publish his work is underway. As a living man John was a force of nature. As a poet, his work reflects that spirit, meditating on untamable surroundings, mirroring an untamable character. If alive today, people might call him an original hipster, while he’d probably dismiss the notion loudly, or smile at it heartily
—Sean Gabbert is a stand-up comic and actor living in New York City, proudly and happily sharing his father’s work.
Tommy Fernandez is working on a novel titled City of Wisdom, and frequently worries about the etiquette of pedestrians.
