Robert Plath Bio

Born in Brooklyn in 1970. Poet. Professor. The last of the few students who were tutored by American poet Allen Ginsberg. His poems have appeared in Long Island Quarterly, The Long Islander, Poetrybay, Evolution, Twisted Nipples, and Brooklyn Review. He currently resides in Patchogue, Long Island where he wages war against self-preservation. In one of his latest poems he muses about the absurdity of taking existence too seriously--"Some people you can't picture dead: the ones whose ashtrays are never empty or the ones whose laughter is like a bull chasing death over the hills."
