This Tony (there is another later in the poem) is possibly "Tony Sherrod, of Knoxville, Tennessee" (221) according to Ellingham and Killian. Their impressions of him:
Tony Sherrod was literally beautiful, explicitly heterosexual, talkative, agreeable. He was insecure, touchy, used light drugs and drank as we all did; for jobs he drove a taxi, tended bar [...] For some people he seemed to register no great impression, but was reasonably popular. For others he was regarded as something to be valued. [...] Tony was a bird of passage, a lovely birdquick, avoiding controversy. (402)From Poet Be Like God: Jack Spicer and the San Francisco Renaissance by Lewis Ellingham and Kevin Killian.
