Come out Wednesday night to Raw Sugar Cafe to help raise money for VERSeFEST, Ottawa’s International Poetry Festival. I’ll be joined by fellow former In/Words editors Amanda Besserer, Dave Currie, Jenna Jarvis and Mark Sokolowski, as well as musician Kaleigh Watts. Show starts at seven pm and it’s five bucks at the door. If I haven’t seen ya in a year I’ll buy a beer.
Poem as a preview of my upcoming reading on Wednesday March 12, 2014, at Raw Sugar Cafe (Ottawa, ON). Seven p.m. five bucks at the door, all proceeds go to VERSeFest.
LEG BRAIN is the product of two periods in our lives, last spring when we got back together after a couple years living in different provinces and were going through, like, stuff, and then this winter, when Justin decided he’d be leaving Ottawa soon and we were going through, like, different stuff. Ultimately it’s all about desire & longing, and held up by the (mutual?) belief the brain’s as much a muscle as the heart’s a home to the soul. We both really want to be happy, and these days are both pretty damned happy.
It just sucks Justin’s no longer just two blocks and a curt text message away.
