American poet who examined the primitive bases of existence that are obscured by the overlay of civilization. His poems search for significance in such circumstances as an individual's personal relationship with violence and inevitable death, attempts to hold death at bay, the plight of the urban dispossessed, and the regenerative power of nature.
