I would love to see your face in the audience at this reading.

I am very pleased to be reading at the Descant 159: “A Winter’s Guide to Melancholia” Launch. In this issue, Descant will be featuring five of my poems: “I meant to tell you the sewing dream”, “Divorce is a black”, “The Cathedrals”, “Bacchus’ Wedding Gift To Me”, and “The Pomegranate’s Revenge”.

Launch info:

The launch will be at No One Writes to the Colonel located at 460 College St. in Toronto., from 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm. on January 23, 2013. Descant is telling you early, before you get a chance to be intoxicated for Christmas rush season, so no excuses!
