Transit Of Venus Chapbook short listed by Doire Press Ireland

My chapbook of poetry, Transit Of Venus, being launched June 2 2012 in Vancouver, was short listed by Doire Press in Ireland for their poetry chapbook publishing prize.

Twenty six new poems about love, taking public transit, and life transitions. Free verse, prose poems, sestina and found poems.

Love from New York restaurants, to the Big Bang Theory,  and the back of an ambulance. Interactions and philosophy on public transit through the doors of buddhism, memory and strangers notebooks. Life transitions like illness, disability, mortality through the lens of jack layton, frida khalo, the 2011 Tsunami in Japan.

You can check out me reading the sestina poem bear at the bottom of a previous blogpost.
