Finally able to discuss Haruki Murakami’s Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage. In this video, I specifically discuss the focus on making things throughout the novel.

Still in awe from last night’s Modern Magazines Project Canada symposium. Inspiring to hear and see the passion of literary and magazine communities in Edmonton and beyond. #eighteenbridges #glassbuffalo #canlit #yeg


The word that takes an entire line
and still needs room
to carry all my belongings.

I am pressed by muscled hours,
thumbprints on my eyelids
at thirty-two degrees.

I am always almost there,
climbing up over this disorder
to the burnt, very white sky,
white as a wall,
once a blank page, now a screen.
