Everything poetry should be: reﬂective and linguistically aware, imagistic, connected to human emotion and experience (Sorry Bök). But, wait, I forgot, delightful.
I stopped in my tracks (pun intended) reading “Cormorant”. Here Wells shows why he is earning his reputation as one of Canada’s best poets.
"Fool's Errand" ... has all the underpinnings of old world craft I ﬁnd lacking in tired free verse and avant garde. This is where Wells excels. This is where our poetry, Canadian Poetry, reaches world standard.

An interesting post by David Kosub about poets' and poetry's relationship to technology. David has also generously uploaded a couple of things I sent him after reading his initial post.

It's not uninteresting when Peter Eisenman takes ... a column and suspends it from the roof of a house so that it doesn't quite reach down to the ground, but he is wrong to think my annoyance at the sight of it is purely ideological, a matter of seeing a cherished cultural convention upset. Our regard for gravity is not just a question of taste.

I'm heading to PEI for one night tomorrow. Why one night? Well, it's a special night, celebrating the launch of the John Smith special issue of CNQ, as well as the launch of Richard Lemm's new poetry collection. Charlottetown, Saturday, 7:30 pm, the Haviland Club. See ya there?
