A 15th Ave character will be remembered late next month as friends and loved ones gather to remember poet Marion Kimes and march together along a path she knew well:
We will converge in front of Coastal Kitchen and proceed along 15th Avenue, stopping along the way at Marion’s various haunts/places she lived, petting cats, picking up trash, etc.
Kimes died this spring at 84 while traveling:
She showed by example how a poet should engage in the world and I’ll never forget her kind, sharp guidance for me and her commitment to Red Sky week after week for years. She died on March 31, 2014, in Dhaka, India. Rest well, Marion. You’ll be missed.
CHS featured Kimes in a peculiar but appropriate enough way in this May 2013 Hill Style street fashion post.
More details on her July 27th memorial are below.
