Three poems of mine have just been published in the online PDF magazine, Ottawater, dedicated to the writing of Ottawa residents, past and present. The first two poems (starting on page 118 of the mag) are Haligonian satires based loosely on Juvenal's Roman satires. If memory serves, I wrote them in the summer of 2005. I thought I might do a longer sequence of them, but my attention span got the better of me after three. The expansive, discursive voice in them is far from something that comes naturally to me when writing verse, so I consider them experiments. Thanks to Robert for publishing them.
