If you haven't guessed yet, the League of Canadian Poets has set this year's Poetry Month theme as "Food" (because "Poetry... you know... about feelings and stuff" doesn't quite have that ring to it).
So come for the food, but stay to watch me try to convince the audience that my poems about family, nature, and sadness are actually about food. I'll call it "soul food" or something. Oh god... I really don't know how I'm going to pull this off...
I'd love to see you at either event (or both)!
