New Winnipeg Poets Folio

My daughter, wise beyond her 15 years, summed up Winnipeg the other day: “Everybody hates it here, but nobody wants to leave.”

Her solution was that we should just all agree to pick up and move the entire city — imagining a mass relocation to some sunnier realm, like when The Simpsons moved Springfield because its citizens had trashed the joint.

It’s the best plan I’ve heard yet.

These poets, from in and around Winnipeg, all of whom have published no more than two trade books (many unpublished in book form, some unpublished before now), might have a better plan, coded within these poems.

Please, if you know Dan Brown, convince him to read through this portfolio and crack the code.

It’s our only hope!!!
