I was humbled, tickled, etc., to be invited to read at a salon with Marcus McCann at the home of Pearl & Brian Pirie. Pearl wrote up the event & posted some photos over at her blog, here. The motive for the event was Marcus, a damn good poet, was passing through town, and well, we don’t get to see enough of him. Last time I heard him read in Ottawa was for the launch of Labradoodle at least a year or two ago. This was an informal opportunity to hear what he’s been up, get some new poems outta him, and hear rob mclennan talk about his baby 😉
Photographed there with yours truly is “Only White Men Shake Hands On The Dance Floor,” which is half the sequel to my previous two chapbooks with Justin Million. Leave a comment below with your address and I’ll send you a copy.
