-- Sounds like an exceptional Montreal poetry lineup... Cat Kidd, Fortner Anderson, and Kaie Kellaugh are all excellent performers of their work... Jennifer Boire can turn a nice phrase, and as for yours truly, well, I'll have to have others blow that horn... (I feel I've blown it enough the last few days...)
