Exclamation (sic): a collection of hand-typed, -stamped broadsides originally wheat-pasted to the dumpsters of Nelson BC. Includes the cheery “Death of Democracy”, “taLL sPooky Tale”, and a wonderful photo of the Slocan River, shot from a tube-cam.
(Just try and) Stop Me If You’ve Heard This One: collected poems & prose from my time in the offices of the David Thompson Cultural Society. Includes “(Not Another) Meat Poem” and an early version of “Search parties found not a clue” which appeared later in Grain (see “Poetry” above).
Jerk: a collection of poems inspired by my work with the writing group Oblitterati, Nelson BC. Includes “The Vodka Diaries: Part 3” and “An Authorized Death”.
Visions of Hecuba and other poems: a collaboration with deceased Cleveland OH poet d.a. levy; a neurotic meditation on the right-wing rise of the BC Liberals and the devastation wrought by this political party’s cuts to arts and culture (as well as women’s centres, seniors’ services, pharmacare, sustainable forestry codes and practices, etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.). Also includes the hilarious “On the Proliferation of Cover Bands”.
Laundry Boy Poems: collected poetry (and a little prose) inspired by Hey, Crumbling Balcony! (poetry) by Stuart Ross. Includes much of the work I performed on CBC Radio’s “North by Northwest” and on many poetry stages since. These page-shots are from a performance copy in which one might discern vocal cues. Includes the hit “Horny” performed at Present Tense as, believe it or not, interpretive dancers writhed about on the stage around me. The highlight that evening was enjoying some hemp tobacco with Charles Tiddler before an audience Q&A..
