As Reality Hits

My natural inclination is to offer the world a poem, but my festival preoccupation is to offer an update. As applications begin to trickle in, the reality is beginning to hit home–On September 26 – 28, the Montreal Public Poetry will occur, happen, become real. “Real” is the word of the day.

Real poets are beginning to sign up. I just received the application from our first Toronto poet, Susan L. Helwig. Thanks Susan!

The logistics of the festival are really quite an undertaking. I won’t bore you with details. I am starting to realize that in Autumn, when leaves on maples speak, so too will a band of magnificent poets. I am humbled by the thought that I am in the middle of such wonderful, thoughtful talented people. Really.
