Variousness in readings, that’s what interests me. Not four lyric poets all in a row, or four sound poets, or four poets writing the very same angle–unless they’re really, really writing the same angle. Nice to read with Paul Durcan and Christian Bok last night, and Mr. Morton, whom I had not met. Very different voices, and all in a way, speaking to each other. And I adored Mr. Durcan, who signed my book “l’audace et encore de l’audace.”

Very nice to put faces to some Ottawa people. Wave to you all, and Mr. McDonald, whom I did not have a chance to talk to…wave again.
