Goddess of Space and Time

Please, Madame, do you trade?
bit of this, for some of that?
Perhaps a year of Law and Order
for two hours in 1970?
The North Van Country Club. 
His head thrown back, laughing,
a twist of cigarillo smoke drifting
towards the disco ball.
And me, in the yellow dress.

Reading at Fat Oyster Reading Series, Sept. 27, 2017

I'll be at Fat Oyster Reading Series, Fanny Bay Community Hall on September 27th. Reading with Brian Brett, Anita Anand and my sister, Janet Miller!  Starts at 7:00.  I love the Fat Oyster reading series.  The hall is wonderful and the audience attentive.  No Italian espresso machines in the background, no traffic to speak of. A great place to read and listen.


Nanoose Retreat with Susan Musgrave, August 2017

Had a great writing retreat at Annie's Acre in Nanoose, BC.  Host Tina Biello was the great organizer and cook as always! It was delightful and educational to work with our great Canadian poet SUSAN MUSGRAVE!  Most our meetings were held in Tina's (and her partner, Patty's) huge teepee!  (You don't always get to mention a teepee when you are talking about a writing retreat!)
