José GouveiaA friend of poetry is ill — with cancer. And poets are rallying around him.  José Gouveia — Joe — is a a newspaper columnist, the host of a radio show, an anthologist (Rubber Side Down: The Biker Poet Anthology), an organizer of readings and workshops, and more.

One of Joe’s friends, Martín Espada, has written a poem in his honor: I Am Here. And the blog Split This Rock has started a Joe Gouveia Recovery Fund to help him cover expenses while he’s hospitalized.
