a quote i can whip out if anyone asks for my views on the state of poetry in Canada

not that that will be happening any time soon, or that i will ever be able to remember a quote on the spot...but perhaps if it does happen i'll be near a computer at the time. it's always good to be prepared...

"The undoubted sign of a society well under control or in decline is that language has ceased to be a means of communication and has become instead a shield for those who master it."

-John Ralston Saul, from Volaire's Bastards
