Oh no!

"Australian poet Dorothy Porter died in Melbourne this morning from complications due to cancer. She was 54.

The writer is best known for The Monkey's Mask, a crime thriller in verse about a lesbian detective that was published in 1994 and won The Age Poetry Book of the Year in the same year."
(The Age)

Best reader of her own work I ever heard - and one of the best poets.

Too dreadful.
