There is a tradition of Canadian poets writing poems titled “Sex at 31” when they are 31 years of age. This poem is not titled Sex at 31 and contains a quote from the film 10 Things I Hate About You which I saw precisely half my life ago.


Accept it

when it’s almost over




I know you can be overwhelmed, and you can be

underwhelmed, but can you ever just be whelmed?


Again I’m asked if I feel I can express myself?


Again, a Russian jet is reckless.


Again I promise you a love poem.
